The Dust Bowl

November 9, 2015March 20, 2016

In the 1930s, photographers working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) captured unforgettable images of human fortitude and despair in the face of calamity. Nebraska photographer Bill Ganzel set out in the late 1970s to find and re-photograph Dust Bowl survivors for a book and exhibition. This Humanities Texas traveling exhibition combines the FSA photographs and Ganzel’s interviews to create an eloquent story of human fortitude.

Humanities Texas is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
