Jack Delano Photography – American photographer for the Farm Security Administration

Who doesn’t know the photos of Rosie the Riveter from the war era? There were many women working during the 30’s and 40’s manufacturing world and work world of men.

One photographer who captured vintage women working in the railroad industry was Jack Delano. His vintage women photographs are iconic, and part of his larger genre of photographing railroad and rail lines.

Jack Delano was born as Jacob Ovcharov in Russia and immigrated with his family to the USA in 1923. He studied art in Pennsylvania at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) where, from 1928 until 1932, he studied illustration.

While in Philadelphia, Jack Delano was awarded the Cresson Traveling Scholarship, and chose to travel to Europe where he bought a camera that got him interested in photography.
