Stunning photos from the Documerica Project
« on: November 07, 2013, 03:27:13 PM »

"In 1971, the EPA formed the Documerica Project. The effort lasted about six years and included 70 photographers who fanned out across all 50 states, according to Slate. Photographers were tasked with taking pictures "relating to environmental problems, EPA activities, and everyday life in the 1970s," according to the National Archives.
The project resulted in 22,000 photographs, some of which we've posted here. Those aren't Instagram filter effects you see that's actual 1970s photography at work. About 15,000 images have been digitally saved on Flickr."
