“[Stryker’s America] is the most coherent exposition of the essence and accomplishment of the Stryker group… [The] production is really first-rate: beautifully written, thoughtfully produced, and splendidly filmed.” —Alan Fern, Director (Retired), National Portrait Gallery
“It truly is a wonderful film that brings a deeper understanding to Stryker’s work at the FSA. Stryker’s America goes beyond the general knowledge that we already have about this important documentary project and provides background that explains Stryker’s goals and motivation. To be honest, the visuals alone could be used to spark an interesting discussion about what we know regarding that period in American history.” —Dennis Chamberlin, Assistant Professor, Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication, Iowa State University
“The work of Roy Stryker and his FSA photographers was a seminal event in the history of documentary photography. Much has been written about the FSA project but only a visual documentary can do these iconic images justice. Stryker’s America does it brilliantly and concisely, bringing the story of the conception of this historic visual record to a new generation.” —Arnold H. Drapkin, Picture Editor (Retired), Time Magazine
“Stryker’s America is an excellent description of how Roy E. Stryker led his photographers at the FSA to be honest, accurate, and deeply sensitive as they went about the nation documenting the Great Depression.” —James P. Blair, Photographer, National Geographic
“Stryker’s America is a wonderful video profile of a significant period of photographic history. Although I’ve been looking at FSA photographs for 30 years,…Stryker’s America gave me fresh and new insights on the importance of Stryker, the man, and the influence of the extraordinary project he guided. I very much enjoyed the information provided by the experts you interviewed, much of which I was not aware. I should think every student of photography would benefit greatly from viewing…Stryker’s America. Job well done.” —Kathleen Ewing, Executive Director, The Association of International Photography Art Dealers
“Stryker’s America is an amazingly beautiful project… the quality is exquisite… I am very impressed with this documentary… wow!—All of the shots are beautifully placed and the sequences of photos unravel so perfectly, very well done, very well produced.” —Laurie Scheer, TV Producer, Author, and University Lecturer
