Arthur Rothstein


During a career that spanned five decades, Arthur Rothstein provoked, entertained and informed the American people with his descriptive images. His photographs ranged from a hometown baseball game to the drama of war, from struggling rural farmers to US Presidents.

He was first known for the photographs he took while working for the Photo Unit of the Historical Section of the Farm Security Administration in the 1930s. Rothstein also served as the director of photography for Look magazine until it stopped printing in 1971 and then for Parade magazine until his death in 1985.
