A peak inside Yossi Milo & a 'bit' about the FSA project

Always aim high!

I also ran across a small short called Documenting the Face of America on Butler Films.

Love the snippet ... 'I always thought of him as a yeast who made people rise to the occasion and do beautiful work'....

I won't bother going into too much detail as to the controversy surrounding the FSA project but for the following from
The work of the FSA photographers embodied a tension between the desire to document what was taking place and the desire to influence what was being done. The photographers walked a fine line between objective neutrality and subjective engagement. Rothstein thought of his pictures as both documents and art. A photographer frames, lights, and crops an image to achieve a desired effect, but that, he believed, did not make it a fiction.
