Russell Lee was born in Ottawa, Illinois on 21 July 1903. His childhood, although of comfortable middle-class rural American heritage, was marred by tragedy. He became interested in photography in 1931 while married to his first wife, artist Doris Emmrick. During the early 1930s he took photographs of the destitute and homeless, and of the artistic community in Woodstock, New York, where he lived. In 1936, he joined Roy Stryder's Resettlment Administration Project, which became the Farm Security Administration (FSA) in 1937. The Project's directive was to use photography to create a social awareness of America's rural problems during the depression years. On behalf of the FSA, Lee traveled to Texas, New Mexico, California, and Arizona. He spent some time documenting the living and working conditions of coal miners for the Interior Department between 1946 and 1947, and then took on industrial assignments. In 1965, Lee began a new career as an educator in the Department of Art at the University of Texas at Austin. He died on 28 August 1986 in Texas.
