ABSTRACT
This article presents information about photographer Dorothea Lange, noted for her photographs of the Great Depression era. One of Lange's best-known photographs showing a migrant mother in California is misleading because many people associate her with the dust bowl and the Depression. Lange took many other photographs of the time before and after the Depression. Her photographs of Japanese-American internment during World War II were just recently exhibited for the first time since they were confiscated by the U.S. government. Lange also spent time taking pictures of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho for U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal program.
