During her work in 1938 as a photographer for the Farm Security Administration (FSA), Wolcott photographed life in rural America. As a woman traveling alone in the South, Post Wolcott was in an unusual position, but she faced harsh weather, suspicious locals, and uncomfortable traveling conditions with verve.
