Coffee Through The Camera's Lens. A Project on Brazil. Photographs by Margaret Bourke-White. Home Economics Department. American Can Company, New York, 1936. 12 reproductions with captions on loose plates (3 1/2 x 6 1/2 in.) plus additional sheets of the same size with map of Brazil, and classroom assignments on the history and production of coffee. Printed card folio with pocket holding contents. Includes reader reply card.



A scarce Depression era document! For Parr and Badger, Coffee Through The Camera's Lens illustrates the 'political conundrum' of Bourke-White's career: she was the "left-leaning photographer" of hard-hitting social documentary such as Say, Is this the U.S.A and You Have Seen Their Faces who, nonetheless, "would willingly work on lucrative commercial assignments for industry, making her one of the highest-paid women in the country...one wonders what a politicized woman like Bourke-White thought of it all when carry out this particular assignment."

Light abrasion to lower edge of folio with 1 in./2.5 cm. tear; some very faint spotting; slight crease to reader reply card; otherwise all contents Fine.
