“Searching for the Seventies”

takes a new look at the 1970s

using remarkable color photographs taken

for a Federal photography project

called Project DOCUMERICA (1971-1977).

 

Created by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),

DOCUMERICA was born

out of the decade’s environmental awakening,

producing striking photographs of many of that era’s

environmental problems and achievements.

 

Drawing its inspiration

from the depression era

Farm Security Administration photography project,

project photographers created

a portrait of America in the early-and-mid-1970s.

 

They documented small Midwestern towns,

barrios in the Southwest,

and coal mining communities in Appalachia.

 

Their assignments

were as varied as African American life in Chicago,

urban renewal in Kansas City, commuters in Washington, DC,

and migrant farm workers in Colorado.

 

The exhibit, featuring 90 images from the project

opens March 8, 2013 at the National Archives

in Washington D.C.

 

It runs through September 8, 2013.

 

What follows is a small sampling of the collection

digitized by the National Archives.
