Arthur Rothstein

Dust Bowl Photographs, 1936Created by: PICRYLDated: 2017
Work Projects Administration riverfront improvement project, Saint Louis, Missouri
Arthur Rothstein arrived in the Dust Bowl Boise City, Oklahoma in April of 1936 hired by his former professor Roy Stryker, at the Resettlement Administration. It was a New Deal agency that relocated struggling families to communities built by the federal government.
He shot the most famous photograph of his career at the homestead of Art Coble in rural Cimarron County. "I was about to get into my car when I turned to wave to... And I looked and saw this man bending into the wind, with one of the boys in front of him and another one behind him, and great swirls of sand all around, which made the sky and the earth become one. And I said, 'What a picture this is!' and I just picked up my camera and went 'click.' One photograph, one shot, one negative." The image Rothstein captured at the Coble farm was soon widely reprinted across the country, becoming the iconic picture of the Dust Bowl and one of the most widely reproduced photographs of the 20th century.
Rothstein is remembered as one of America's most influential photojournalists.
