"American Modern", the beautifully illustrated companion volume to the exhibit of the same name, explores the reinvention of documentary photography in the 1930s, focusing on the work of three iconic figures: Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, and Margaret Bourke-White. More broadly, the book maps the formation of what we now identify as 'documentary style', showing how a marginalized genre associated with Progressive reform politics was transformed into a major component of modern art and public culture in America. The essays by Sharon Corwin, Jessica May, and Terri Weissman describe how each of these three photographers developed a different model of photography - as well as a particular understanding of modernism and modernity - which each believed would set the standard for future generations of artists. American Modern identifies the points where Abbott, Evans, and Bourke-White connected, diverged, and competed, and demonstrates how commercial and governmental commissions, the influence of mass media, the establishment of public institutions of modern art, and international theories of photography all intersected to establish the now-dominant documentary style.

"As the title reveals, this book profiles the holy trinity of American documentary photographers, a distinct group of artists who came to prominence in the 1930s." Library Journal

"Well-written essays reveal the dark mood and deeply political roots of the documentary style and focus on each artist's journey." Shutterbug
