This trip had such a profound influence on him that he settled there permanently in 1946. Jack Delano (August 1, 1914 August 12, 1997) was an American photographer for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) and a composer noted for his use of Puerto Rican folk material. After graduating from the PAFA Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In 1932, Delano proposed a photographic project to the Federal Art Project: a study of mining conditions in the Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania anthracite coal area. Delano sent sample pictures to Roy Stryker and applied for a job at the Farm Security Administration Photography program FSA. As a condition of the job, Delano had to have his own car and driver’s license, both of which he acquired before moving to Washington, D. Before working at the FSA, Delano had done his own processing and developing but did neither at the FSA. Other photographers working for the FSA include Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks. In 1943 FSA was eliminated as “budget waste” and subsumed into the Office of War Information (OWI).
