One of the most important documentary photographers of our time, Dorothea Langes revolutionary work chronicled Americas struggle with poverty during the Great Depression. Her widely reproduced, classic portrait from the 1940s,Migrant Mother, is just one of the many unforgettable images found in her stunning oeuvre of documentary works. While there have been other books on Langes photographs, none exist with the scope and breadth of this monograph, which comes from her archives at the Oakland Museum in California and includes numerous unpublished photographs.
