1942

「山姆大叔要你去当兵!」这是美国人在第二次世界大战期间常常看到的海报。为了吸引更多美国公民投入支持战争的各项工作,就在珍珠港遭到轰炸的七个月后,政府在1942613日设立了战争信息局。战争信息局的摄影师通过展示飞机工厂、军队人员,以及妇女工作队人员的照片,来记录美国人的生活与文化。通过宣传,战争信息局希望能够激起美国大众人民的爱国心。

Using propaganda (photographs and captions with emotional content), the OWI aimed to inspire patriotic fervor in the American public.
