FSA Photo of the week

Here ya go:

This is basically a very modern image, to my eye. We see this sort of thing a fair bit these days, minimalist images that border on the abstract, despite being clearly depictions of a thing. This is a particularly good example of the form, since the photographer does not appear to be deliberately reaching for the banal. For which we should thank him.

The beach at Seaside, Oregon. Shot by Russell Lee, Sept. 1941.
