The year is 1939. Here’s a serene image of a farm in the community of Woodstock, Vermont, as photographed by Marion Post Wolcott. Marion was a pioneer in the world of women photographers. As a young woman, she worked for the U.S. Farm Security Administration. She was assigned to various regions of the country, to document everyday farm life. At the time, her job was more utilitarian than artistic. However, years later – long after Marion had retired to raise a family – she was “discovered” by the New York art world. Today she is recognized internationally as one of the great American photo journalists of the 20th century.
