I was brought in, not in the photographic department at all, I was brought in on a thing called Special Skills. I was to do posters, pamphlets, murals, propaganda in general, you know.

我是被带进来的,根本不是在摄影部门,我是被带进来的一种叫做特殊技能的东西。我是做海报,小册子,壁画,一般的宣传,你知道的。

So, I was offered this job to come down there but first it was suggested that I take a trip around the country in the areas in which we worked to see what it's all about, and I tell you that was a revelation to me.

所以,我得到了这份工作,但首先有人建议我到我们工作的地区去走走看看,我告诉你这对我来说是一个启示。

In '38, this time I did a job for Mr. Stryker. I went on his payroll at about half the salary I was getting before, to cover what he called Harvest in Ohio.

在38年,这一次我为史崔克先生做了一份工作。我在他的工资单上花了我以前工资的一半,来支付他在俄亥俄州所谓的收获。

I was so impressed with the work we were doing and I was very involved ideologically in photography - that I arranged an exhibition at the College Art Association. The first exhibition I picked the photographs and so on and we had an exhibition in New York.

我们所做的工作给我留下了深刻的印象,我在摄影方面也很有思想性,所以我在大学艺术协会安排了一个展览。第一次展览我挑选了照片等等,我们在纽约举办了一个展览。

It's a little bit like my inability to read a guide book before I go anywhere. I can read it after I've been there and by the same logic I refuse to accept any technical stunts from anybody. I refused to learn more than I knew and I confess I missed a great deal.

这有点像我在去任何地方之前都看不懂导游书。我到了那里之后就可以看了,按照同样的逻辑,我拒绝接受任何人的任何技术特技。我拒绝学习比我知道的更多的东西,我承认我错过了很多。
