EPA Earth Day State of the Environment Photo Project - Documerica 40 Years Later
After more than 40 years of greater environmental awareness and protection since EPA opened its doors, how far have we come? Photos are displayed alongside the 1970s collection of the very same idea. From 1971 to 1977, the Environmental Protection Agency hired freelance photographers to capture images relating to environmental problems, EPA activities, and everyday life in the 1970s. The U.S. National Archives digitized more than 15,000 photographs from the series. 4,000 Documerica project images are available on the Web
Earth Day, which occurs annually on April 22, involves tens of thousands of events, from rallies and teach-outs to concerts and Earth fairs. You'll find them everywhere, in the world's capitals and in its nooks and crannies -- together sending a message loud and clear that this turf is precious, perishable and belongs to all of us.
