This research questions the exclusionary role of iconic photographs via analysis of the FSA Photographic Unit and Archive. Specifically, this presentation will discuss findings from trends in circulated FSA photographs of families, in contrast to findings from a set of FSA photographs families that were never circulated. I ask how popular readings of FSA photographs as objective or “true” impact the material which circulated and that which was left to be forgotten. My research is archival, but its implications are for the future of photographic production, consumption, and archival interpretation in relation to dominant constructions of marginalized identities.
