Influential Photo

Dorothea Lange

Migrant Mother

This picture caught my eye due to the strong expression of struggle shown in this photo. This was taken during the Great Depression as there were hardships for many families who were not able to obtain proper resources to survive. The mother’s face is pain stricken and her children are leaning on her for support, their clothes tattered and dirty, she looks as if she doesn’t know what to do as she stares off into the distance. Due to this picture becoming the face of the event, there were many efforts put into helping those who were in poverty.
