Photographers Johanna (Hansel) Mieth (1909-1998) and Otto Hagel (1909-1973) made notable contributions to the development of social documentary practice and photojournalism in the U.S. Mieth and Hagel led lives fervently committed to social and political independence rather than commercial success or fame.

Mieth became a staff photographer for LIFE within the first year of the magazine's publication, in 1936. Her work was a vital part of the magazine for the next decade. In 1940, the couple married in a double ceremony with their friend Robert Capa and his fiancee Toni Sorrel.
