On Assignment: the Photojournalism of Horatio Bristol

None
Monday January 06
Horace Bristol achieved critical and popular acclaim in 1938 for his photographs of migrant workers in California during the Great Depression. Accompanied by writer John Steinbeck, Bristol attempted to draw attention to the plight of the dispossessed, and Steinbeck later drew upon the experience for his seminal novel, The Grapes of Wrath. Bristol continued to use the camera as a tool for cultural and social awareness over the next decade and created an impressive body of work that includes images of the American West, Bali, World War II and postwar Japan. Sponsored by the Oklahoma Gazette
