Photographer-of-the-Month: Dorothea Lange.
Dorothea actually grew up right outside of NYC in Hoboken and is most known for humanizing the Great Depression. Her images are intensely haunting – and perhaps a bit too real.
This is one of Lange’s most acclaimed photos entitled “Migrant Mother.” Even though some of Lange’s details of the account were reportedly incorrect, she said the following in 1960…
First and foremost, I consider myself a lover of nature, an advocate for people and their environment. You can call me many titles, but this is the one that I feel best describes who I am, what drives me—and that’s the work that I am most proud of.
I am one of the lucky ones; I’ve always had a passion. It was with me the day I was born. I have known nothing else…and that most defines how I go about my life.
