Personal turmoil

Dorothea Lange was taking portraits of wealthy people when she decided to take photographs of the poor during the Great Depression.

“I was driven by the fact that I was under personal turmoil to do something,” she once said.

Lange’s photos, including the iconic Migrant Mother, “humanized the consequences of the Great Depression.” I saw some of her photos recently in an exhibit at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa.
