Photographer Russell Lee captured this shepherd with his horse and dog on Gravelly Range, Madison County, Montana in August 1942. Lee is perhaps best known for his work with the Farm Security Administration (FSA), where he documented rural and small-town life as people dealt with the Great Depression, Dust Bowl and increasing farm mechanization. During the eight years the FSA existed, it complied a photo-documentary collection of 77,000 photographs as well as 644 color documentary still photographs.
