Photo of the Week: Winter in Sarasota

This installment of Photo of the Week features photographer Marion Post Wolcott (1910-1990), who would have turned 99 this week. Wolcott is best known for her body of work created for the Farm Security Administration during the Great Depression. Her sister, Helen Post (1907-1979), was also a photographer whose archive of 11,000 prints and negatives is here at the Carter!

Now on to the photo...
