John Dominis ::

Not published in LIFE. Appalachia, eastern Kentucky, 1964.

Dominis shot an extraordinary 12-page feature for the Jan. 31, 1964, issue of Life, titled “The Valley of Poverty” — one of the very first substantive reports in any American publication on President Lyndon Johnson’s nascent War on Poverty.
