In the middle of the Great Depression, photographers working for Franklin D. Roosevelt's Farm Security Administration (FSA) began traveling across America taking pictures of ordinary people and places. Their photographs became a permanent legacy of our national life -- the most remarkable human documents that were ever rendered in pictures, according to Edward Steichen.
