Bookmark | America at the crossroads.

Arthur Rothstein, Camp Resident (Visalia, California, 1940)
America at the Crossroads: Great Photographs from the Thirties (edited by Jerome Prescott, Smithmark Publishers, 1995) allows me the opportunity to review and relish photographers like Lewis Hine, Dorothea Lange, and Walker Evans (fond memories of art history classes), while introducing me to those less familiar including Arthur Rothstein, Marion Post Wolcott, and George Alexander Grant. I'm very happy to make their acquaintance.

Arthur Rothstein, Custer State Park Scene (Custer State Park, South Dakota, 1936)
