The year is 1939. To call me a fan of U.S. Farm Security Administration photographer, Marion Post Wolcott – would be a vast understatement. I think her work is nothing short of wonderful.

In the winter of 1939-40, Marion was sent by the FSA to the cozy little farming community of Woodstock, in the heart of Vermont’s ski country. The photos she took are a remarkable representation of middle-American life on the cusp of World War II. This week, we’re featuring photos by one of the pioneering female photographers of the 20th century. As always, we’ve created colorized versions, however, these black & white photos stand on their own as fine art.
