What’s the scene today, Arkansas?
These exact locations would be a challenge to match, but the types of scenes maybe less so. In 1972, students in Sebastian County, Arkansas were learning about ecology and picking up roadside litter. What is day to day life like now? Telling the story of change is in your hands.
Spread the word to those nearby, or search for images closer to home. The best matches will be considered for display in the U.S. National Archives Exhibit: Searching for the Seventies set for Washington D.C. from March through September of 2013.
Take your best shots of original Documerica scenes from any one of our location challenges or find a scene near you. Submit your entries to State of the Environment on Flickr and be sure to let us know which Documerica image inspired you.
