A woman asleep in a car on a summer Sunday. Photograph taken by Marjory Collins when working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) and the Office of War Inormation (OWI). Together they produced some of the most remarkable social documentary photographs of the 20th century in their attempt to produce an encyclopaedic record of American life between 1935 and 1944, employing such photographers as Dorothea Lange, Jack Delano and Ben Shahn.
