Born in 1938, Owens first became interested in photography while working as a Peace Corps volunteer in Jamaica. On his return to the United States in 1966, he enrolled in a visual anthropology course in San Francisco and began taking pictures. Starting as a documentarian, Owens was particularly drawn to the work of the 1930s documentary photographers of the Farm Security Administration (FSA), such as Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans.
