Tonight at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., five of the original DOCUMERICA photographers will participate in a panel discussion in the McGowan Theater, 7:00 p.m. This event is cosponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency.
DOCUMERICA: The Photographers
For the DOCUMERICA project, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hired nearly 100 freelance photographers to capture images relating to environmental problems, EPA activities, and everyday life in the 1970s. A panel of these photographers discuss their work shown in the exhibit, “Searching for the Seventies: The DOCUMERICA Photography Project,” including Jack Corn, Lyntha Scott Eiler, Tom Hubbard, Michael Philip Manheim, and John H. White. Presented in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency.
Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m. at the National Archives William G. McGowan Theater. (Enter the National Archives Building through the Special Events entrance on Constitution Ave. )
Happy New Year! Daily DOCUMERICA is back from the holidays and ready to share some great 1970s images from the DOCUMERICA collection. One of our Facebook friends recently spent time in Lake Tahoe, skiing and taking in the natural beauty. That inspired us to pull out some Lake Tahoe pics, both from California and Nevada, taken by Belind Rain during her time as a DOCUMERICA photographer.
Let’s get started with this one. Sort of the best of both worlds, right? Sun bathing on a beach, but with snow-capped mountains in the distant view. Photograph by Belinda Rain for DOCUMERICA, May 1972
