Migrant Mother – Dorothea Lange

Perhaps some people may have heard of, or recognise the photograph titled ‘Migrant Mother’ by photographer Dorothea Lange, taken in 1936, California.  The woman in the photo is Florence Owens Thompson.  Lange was concluding a month’s trip photographing migratory farm labor around the state for what was then the Resettlement Administration.  This first image is actually one of a series, there is a less well know image of Florence Owens Thompson, breastfeeding.
