FSA-OWI: John Collier description

This app shows over 5,000 photographs taken by John Collier Jr. for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) and the Office of War Information (OWI) from 1941 to 1943.

An internet connection is required. You can view the photos in a grid, with the complete Library of Congress captions; one-by-one; or as a slideshow. You can also browse to the Library of Congress page for each photo and order prints, at very reasonable prices.

Collier was born in 1913, the son of John Collier Sr., who served as Commissioner of Indian Affairs from 1933 to 1945. The family spent much time in the Taos, New Mexico, area, and Collier Jr. made his home there in the 1930s. (About a thousand of the photos here were taken in New Mexico.) He was introduced to photography by Dorothea Lange when he, as a teenager, was apprenticed to her husband, painter Maynard Dixon. Collier also spent time with noted photographer Paul Strand in New Mexico in the 1930s, and set up his first studio in Strand's old darkroom in Taos.

Collier's photos are mostly of people, which accords with his lifelong interest in the use of photography in anthropology. He's the author of a classic text, Visual Anthropology: Photography as a Research Method (1967). He died in San Jose, Costa Rica, in 1992 while on vacation.

I've arranged the photos here by location, except for a group I call Farm Advice that contains photos made into posters, and a Miscellaneous group. Most of the photos are smaller than the iPad screen, but still large enough to enjoy and study. About 100 of them are larger, so I've repeated them in the Large Photos group so you can view just them if you want.
