Some of the photos were taking by Jack Delano. He was one of a number of gifted photographers who worked for the Farm Security Administration during the Great Depression. Under this program, the federal government paid artists for their work (a make work program similar to the WPA and others). Photographers like Jack and Irene Delano, Marion Post Wolcott, and Dorothea Lange traveled the USA during the Depression, creating some of America's most iconic rural and "Grapes of Wrath" kind of photography.
We used a Delano photo on the cover of the winter 2012 issue of our magazine. This photo was taken in "White Plains, Greene County, GA, in June 1941. Most of the Farm Security Administration photos were black-and-white, but a small percentage were color.
