During the Great Depression of the 1930s, photographers such as Walker Evans, Arthur Rothstein and Dorothea Lange were sent throughout the United States to capture what many had to endure. Many were escaping the Dust Bowl and seeking better lives. Roy Stryker of the Farm Service Administration (FSA) was behind the project.
Paul McCreary will present a program featuring some of the photographers and work they produced during that era.
Paul grew up on an Illinois farm and got an undergraduate degree in art education. He taught art, emotionally impaired students, adults, and was a special education coordinator/TC in Michigan for 29 years, retiring in 1995.
He developed an interest in photography while in Michigan, and continued that as he retired to Indiana and moved to Colorado in 2001 with his wife where they owned and operated a B&B. He moved to Arizona part-time in 2006 and full time in 2014. He teaches a variety of classes in Green Valley, including painting, and continues with photography and filmmaking.
