Dorothea Lange: Daring To Look : NPR

Dorothea Lange: Daring To Look : NPR.

There’s a black-and-white photograph that is one of the most enduring images of the Great Depression. Titled “Migrant Mother,” it shows a poor farmworker. Her hand touches her face in worry, and two ragged children cling to her shoulders. A baby is wrapped in cloth in the mother’s lap.
The image of Florence Owens Thompson and her children taken in 1936 in Nipomo, Calif., is one of the most reproduced photographs in history. The photographer behind this iconic work was Dorothea Lange.
