    My grand parents were migrants also, I never see photos of Mexican people. I am a second generation Mexican-American, I guess there was no interest in Mexican people then, they also suffered the depression. Photo by Dorothea Lange - Grandmother and sick baby of migratory family camped in a trailer in an open field. They came from Amarillo, Texas, to pick cotton in Arizona. Pre WWII.

    At a time when women had had the vote for less than twenty years, Dorothea Lange was a pioneer. A professional woman who took photographs for a living. The Great Depression of the 1930s is best remembered, photographically, by the work of the FSA, for which she worked. She travelled the USA recording the deprivations caused by the failure of the economy as well as taking many uplifting images that showed that, despite the hard times, life and love went on.
