L'exposition The Bitter Years : 1935-1941 fut présentée par le Museum of Modern Art, à New York, du 18 octobre au 25 novembre 1962 : 208 images prises par des photographes qui travaillaient sous l'égide de la US Farm Security Administration (FSA) entre 1935 et 1941 - Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn, Carl Mydans et Arthur Rothstein.

The Bitter Years fut la dernière exposition dont Edward Steichen fut le commissaire. Il n'était pas seulement un éminent photographe mais également le célèbre directeur du département photographie du Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).


" A celebration of some of the most iconic photographs of the 20th century that provides a whole new insight into Edward Steichen’s impact on the history of documentary photography.

" The Bitter Years was a seminal exhibition curated by Edward Steichen in 1962 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The show featured 208 images by photographers who worked under the aegis of the US Farm Security Administration (FSA) in 1935-41 as part of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal.
The Great Depression of the 1930s defined a generation in modern American history and was still a vivid memory in 1962. The FSA, set up to combat rural poverty, included an ambitious photography project that launched many photographic careers, most notably those of Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange. The exhibition featured their work as well as that of ten other FSA photographers, including Ben Shahn, Carl Mydans, and Arthur Rothstein.

(...) The Bitter Years was the last exhibition curated by Steichen, who was not only a distinguished photographer in his own right, but also a celebrated director of the photography department at MoMa. "
