Documerica was a photo project commissioned by the Environmental Protection Agency in the 1970s to document life, people, and the environment across the United States. These photos are a slice of life from New Ulm, Minnesota to South Beach, Florida and everywhere in between.
In honor of Environmental Awareness month and Earth Day on April 22, we will be posting 30 Documerica photos in 30 days on Foursquare. Each photo will be linked to a tip at a different location around the U.S., so follow us on Foursquare or check out the recent tips on our Foursquare page every day this month to see what’s new. Our first tip takes us to Haymarket Square, one of the oldest farmer’s markets in the Boston area.
