Farm Security Administration, original silver print glossy 8 x 10 inch fiber photograph credited to Arthur Rothstein. Photographed is identified on verso as "Greenbelt, MD. A Model kitchen planned by the Suburban Div. of the U.S. Resettlement Adm. / Photo - Rothstein - 1936."

Arthur Rothstein (July 17, 1915 - November 11, 1985), American photographer. Rothstein is recognized as one of America’s premier photojournalists. During a career that spanned five decades, he provoked, entertained and informed the American people. His photographs ranged from a hometown baseball game to the drama of war, from struggling rural farmers to US Presidents.

The RA and FSA are well known for the influence of their photography program, 1935-1944. Photographers and writers were hired to report and document the plight of poor farmers. The Information Division of the FSA was responsible for providing educational materials and press information to the public. Under Roy Stryker, the Information Division of the FSA adopted a goal of "introducing America to Americans." Many of the most famous Depression-era photographers were fostered by the FSA project. Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks were three of the most famous FSA alumni. The FSA was also cited in Gordon Parks' autobiographical novel, "A Choice of Weapons."

Image circa 1936; printed in the second half of the 20th century as part of the American Heritage Publishing Archive.
