Joseph Koudelka's photographs aim at a visul distillation of a pattern of human values: a pattern that involves theater, large gesture, brave style, precious camarderie and bitter loneliness. The pattern and texture of his pictures form the silent equivalent of an epic drama. Koudelka's pictures seem to concern themselves with prototypical rituals, and a theater of ancient and unchangeable fables. Their motive is perhaps not psychological but religious. Perhaps they describe not the small and cherished differences that distinguish each of us from all others, but the prevailing circumstance that encloses us."

Archibald MacLeish's Land of the Free was published in 1938. The book, described by MacLeish as "...the opposite of a book of poems illustrated by photographs. It is a book of photographs illustrated by a poem" includes 88 photographs by Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Arthur Rothstein and Ben Shahn.
MacLeish used photos from the Farm Security Administration and other agencies to accompany what he called a "sound track." The tone of this track is distress, worry, disillusionment and a sense of unease about the future of America and is exhibited in these passages:

Paul Fusco accompanied the funeral train of Sen Robert F. Kennedy, which carried the coffin along the east coast from New York City to Washington, D.C. and its final resting place in Arlington Cemetery. The coffin was placed in the last carriage, elevated on two chairs hence visible through large observation windows. As the train slowly traveled south, America came to mourn its loss of more than a future president, but a future leader. Paul Fusco photographed the silent, mourning crowds from the passing train. The result, brought to light over 30 years later, is a moving snapshot of America at a crucial moment of trauma and transition
