Facing Change: Documenting America was founded in 2009 by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographers Anthony Suau and Lucian Perkins, and is a contemporary counterpart to the work done in the 1930s and 1940s by photographers employed by the Farm Security Administration. Facing Change announced a new collaboration with the Library of Congress, which will allow the Library to publish books based on the Facing Change images, and to add the photographs to their extensive and historical archives.

Other contributors to Facing Change include Stanley Greene, Alan Chin, Brenda Ann Kenneally, Carlos Javier Ortiz, David Burnett, Debby Flemming Caffery, Danny Wilcox Frazier and Andrew Lichtenstein.


In honor of the collaboration, Time Magazine's photography blog LightBox has asked each of the photographers of the Facing Change collective to choose a photograph from the original FSA archive, and discuss how it has influenced their own work. Read more here.
