Photographers typically worked for the Farm Security Administration (like Lange) or in one of three WPA divisions: Creative Projects, Art Teaching, or Allied Art Projects, which documented other WPA programs. Nationwide, WPA's Information Service coordinated state level activities and sent photographers into the field to create journalistic photo essays.
Spare A Dime features many of these historical photographs, plus our own versions replicated with our constituents and communities affected by the "Great Recession." Before each song in the cycle, and audio story from COSACOSA's community constituents sets the stage with WPA photographs that cross-fade into their modern-day equivalents.
