    Dorothea Lange. 1895-1965 Migrant Mother, by Dorothea Lange in 1936. Lange's photographs humanized the consequences of the Great Depression and influenced the development of documentary photography. With the onset of the Great Depression, her studies of unemployed & homeless people captured the attention of local photographers and led to her employment with the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Lange took this photograph with a Graflex camera on large format 4"x5" negative film.

    This photograph of Florence Owens Thompson (32 year old mother of 7) is one of the great representations of the Great Depression. The photograph was taken by Dorothea Lange after Florence had sold her tent to provide food for her children. Interesting learning about Dorothea Lange's photography work in Intro To Fine Arts.
