I wanted to give you a little perspective on today’s quote. Be sure to read Scott’s article on her.
Here’s an excerpt from a documentary about her work. Thanks to the Getty museum for posting :http://bit.ly/gettygoogleplus
Dorothea Lange’s stirring images of migrant farmers and the unemployed have become universally recognized symbols of the Great Depression. Later photographs documenting the internment of Japanese Americans and her travels throughout the world extended her body of work. Watch the video to hear Lange discuss how she began her documentary projects for the Farm Security Administration, and learn how she felt about some of her assignments and subjects.
