American Photography: A Century of Images

1999 Rated NR 2hr 40m

Photography has played an integral role in American history -- from the treasured family snapshot to Dorothea Lange's powerful images of the Great Depression to the front-page photo of man's footprints on the moon. This documentary explores its impact in America from 1900 to 1999 -- from the time everyday Americans could own cameras to photography's increasingly important role in shaping public opinion and its development as an art form.
