Photographs for the FSA often explore the political aspects of poverty and deprivation. They also often find humour in the situations she encountered. In the 1970s, a renewed interest in Post Wolcott's images among scholars rekindled her own interest in photography.In 1978, Wolcott mounted her first solo exhibition in California, and by the 1980s the Smithsonian and the Metropolitan Museum of Art began to collect her photographs. The first monograph on Marion Post Wolcott's work was published in 1983. Wolcott was an advocate for women's rights; in 1986, Wolcott said: Women have come a long way, but not far enough. Speak with your images from your heart and soul Women in Photography Conference, Syracuse, N. Post Wolcott's work is archived at the Library of Congress and the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona.
