Taken by Jack Delano, a photographer for the Farm Security Administration, this picture documents two young women planting a field of crops. They are plainly dressed and stand holding their baskets of seeds. Delano expertly captures a quiet tone of hope, and includes the presence of people of color in an American agriculture setting.
