"This book is a valuable record of conversations with fifteen celebrated and distinguished photographers representing the spectrum of "schools", movements, and styles currently in the medium. The interviews establish a vivid and intimate portrait of each subject, focusing on the history of the artist's career, the relationship between his vocational photography, and his personal imagery, the genesis of particular works, and specific technical processes, and are invaluable to an understanding of American photography today."--Page 4 de la couverture.

In the early 1940s, as the conflict between the Axis and the Allies spread worldwide, the U.S. State Department turned its attention to Axis influence in Latin America. To cultivate the region's support for the Allies while portraying Brazil and its neighbors as dependable wartime partners, the State Department created the Office of Inter-American Affairs, with Nelson Rockefeller in charge. Genevieve Naylor, a photojournalist previously employed by the Associated Press and the WPA, was sent to Brazil in 1940 by Rockefeller's agency to provide photographs for propaganda. Often balking at her mundane assignments, an independent-minded Naylor produced something far different and far more rich - a stunning collection of over a thousand images that document a rarely seen period in Brazilian history. Accompanied by analysis from Robert M. Levine, this selection of Naylor's photographs offers a unique view of everyday life during one of modern Brazil's least-examined decades.
