TVA Photography: Thirty Years of Life in the Tennessee Valley (Paperback)Patricia Bernard Ezzell (author)
- Not available
As the book highlights the agency's first thirty years, it also focuses on the talented photographers who snapped the images during the period 1933 to 1963. Primarily represented in this volume is the work of Lewis Hine and Charles Krutch. Hine is best known for his publication Men at Work, for his photographic expose of the injustice of child labor, and for his series of photographs documenting the construction of the Empire State Building. Although he worked for TVA for less than one month, he left a photographic legacy that includes such subjects as farm life, the camps of the newly formed Civilian Conservation Corps, and Norris Dam in the early stages of its construction.
However, it was Krutch, a self-proclaimed amateur photographer, whose work came to define the public image of TVA.
This book provides a glimpse into the past, affording a view of a depressed region of the South as it was transformed into a place where one of the most complex technological advancements of our time--the atomic bomb--was created.
