Worked as a photojournalist for Time, Fortune, the Associated Press and WPA. In the early 1940s the U.S. State Department required photographs that could be used for propaganda purposes at a time when World War II was underway and the split between Fascist countries and their opponents was becoming an issue of global significance. She was sent to Brazil in 1940 and documented the country which was under the dictatorship of Getúlio Vargas. She recorded the lives or the poor and rich rather than Brazil's economic progress. In 1943 she had a one-woman show at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Later on she became Eleanor Roosevelt’s personal photographer.
