The American Image

An interactive site featuring John Collier Jr.'s WWII photos

The American Image is an online exhibit exploring John Collier Jr.’s work during the war years of the 1940’s. The photographs depict day-to-day life in America during World War II. The site serves two purposes. First, it brings the wonderful photographs of a significant Maxwell Museum photographic collection, the Collier Collection, to a new audience. Secondly, a series of activities guide users through an in-depth examination of visual media.
