Picturesque Japan Palmer Productions – YouTube. The video quality poor because I used a iPhone to record from the movie screen. Palmer who produced films from 1931 until 1967. The pictures focus on rural areas and farm labor, as well as aspects of World War II mobilization, including factories, railroads, aviation training, and women working. The original images are color transparencies ranging in size from 35 mm. They complement the better-known black-and-white FSA/OWI photographs, made during the same period. His photos and film work were notable for his portrayal of men and women at work in the industry of America at that time. He used a crude lighting system which focused on the person rather than his environment, sometimes creating an extreme contrast in his images.
