Young farmers (1914)
Three men are wearing wide-brimmed hats, with canes firmly in hand, as a cigarette casually hangs out of the corner of one of their mouths. Sander's "Young Farmers" is probably among the most famous of his photographs. The image even inspired Richard Powers for his novel "Three farmers on Their Way to a Dance." Today, however, it is clear that the gents were in fact miners.
