Color Photographs from the WPA (1939-1943)

Color Photographs from the WPA (1939-1943)

Last night Color Photographs from the WPA (1939-1943), a collective of color photographs from various artists documenting the later period of the New Deal, opened at Carriage Trade Gallery, carriagetrade.org. This show gives the viewer a rare chance to take in what times back then looked like in color film. I have personally never seen color photographs from the WPA and was very impressed with the first time feeling of seeing these photos. The images range from farms to fashion girls in the city to army planes and naval ships. In the back articles covering the news of the time period are printed and posted, bringing a reality to what you are looking at in the pictures. I recommend everyone to stop by Carriage Trade Gallery and see this beautiful show.
