For one week in 1938, curious New Yorkers eagerly queued to view – and respond to – a series of astonishing black-and-white images of rural and small-town America in a special exhibition at the International Photographic Exposition held in Grand Central Station. Although never conceived as fine art photography, the exhibition would be among the [...]
