A traveling exhibition is letting people experience the Great Depression through photographs.
Valdosta State University's fine arts gallery is hosting a photography collection from Franklin D. Roosevelt's Presidential Library and Museum.
The collection features iconic photographs taken between 1935 and 1942.
The works of legendary photographers like Dorothea Lange and Gordon Parks are featured and have evoked a range of emotion from viewers.
"Some of these photographs were first shown in 1938 and it has some of the comments on the panel saying things like, everything from 'I can't believe this is America' to 'Oh great, propaganda for FDR,'" said Julie Bowland, gallery director.
The university plans to host a panel discussion on the exhibit September 1st at 7 p.m. in Sawyer Theatre.
The exhibit runs through September 11th.
