The Resettlement Administration of the U.S. Department of Agriculture hired Walker Evans (b.11.3.1903) to document the poverty of people living in rural America during the Great Depression. His photo “Bud (William) Fields, Lily Rogers Fields, and Lilian Fields” tells the bleak story of sharecroppers in the American South during this era. See Art Through Time, program 7, “Domestic Life.”
