The Photo League - FSA was an American organization of photographers founded in 1936 in New York City. The group was united under the common goal of using documentary photography to expose the social and political struggles of their day, beginning in the Great Depression era. Several photographers from this group were hired by the Farm Security Administration in 1935 to document the conditions of poor rural areas of the United States. The photographs proved to be educational to the public and assisted government research aiming to help improve these deprived areas.
