Evans worked for the Farm Security Administration in the 1930s, and is considered responsible for introducing the concept of documentary photography to the U.S. In particular, a series of photos of farmers taken during the Depression, done in a completely objective style, showed people the terrible conditions under which the farmers lived and that they needed help.
