    Dorthea Lange’s work: Art medium Photograph. I like this picture because it depicts what many Americans did. Pick up and move out. To me the billboard in the back just adds a bit of mockery to the situation. Because if they had the money, or the choice, I’m sure they would have chosen to take the train but Instead they have to, walk who knows how many miles. Also, the long deserted road adds a mystery factor to it. Such as did they get to where they were going? Did they survive?
