Marion Post (1910 – 1990), later Marion Post Wolcott, was a noted American photographer who worked for the Farm Security Administration during the Great Depression documenting poverty and deprivation. Post trained as a teacher and went to work in a small town in Massachusetts. There she saw the reality of the Depression and the problems of the poor. When the school closed, she went to Europe to study with her sister Helen. Helen was studying with Trude Fleischmann, a Viennese photographer. Marion Post showed Fleischmann some of her photographs and was told to stick to photography. (Photo shot in Montezuma, CO, USA, 1939. Photo sponsors: Judy Edwards and Rebekah.)
