Rothstein, Arthur

(1915-1985)
   Born in New York City, Authur Rothstein studied science and became interested in photography at Columbia University, where he met Roy Stryker. In 1936, he joined Stryker’s team of photographers at the Resettlement Administration, later replaced by the Farm Security Administration. Rothstein’s work included powerful images of the Dustbowl and the poverty of rural life, most famously perhaps in his images of Gee’s Bend, Alabama, in 1937. In 1940, he went to work at Look magazine. From 1943 to 1946, he worked with the Army Signal Corps before returning to Look, where he worked until 1972 when he joined Parade. Rothstein also taught at Columbia University and other universities through the 1960s and authored a number of books on photography and photojournalism. See also ART.
