Mother Korean child, 1958 Pledge of Allegiance, 1942 White Angel Bread Line, 1933 Ghost Child, 1936 Peach Picker 1936 Formal Analysis The Meaning of her phtographs How has it affected America Why do I think it was chosen Context Content Lange had a very difficult life. At age 7, she had polio, which left her with a withered lower right leg and a twisted, crabbed foot. Lange's disability meant that she could not put her heel down as she walked.

Even still, Lange was a strong woman, physically and emotionally. She was ambitious at a time when women weren't supposed to be. Dorothea Lange gave a voice to the very poor people, the people who were the most hard hit to show the public what these people were going through and inspired those to help. Dorothea Lange helped show people how hard the depression hit most people and to spark peoples willigness to help these people who have been hit the hardest. She has people see the depression in her eyes and has kept the lives of those in the depression alive. I feel that Dorothea Lange was chosen because of the meaning in her photos and because of the way that her pictures take those who see them to a time where it wa extremely hard to live for most people. Migrant Mother is one of her most famous pieces of art showing a mother, her two older children and her baby in her arms.
The contrast of the hair and the blankets as well as the babies face.
The focal point is the mothers face as she looks off into the distant. Some common themes in Dorothea Langes works include, The Great Depression, Migrant Workers, the less fortunate, and many Asian Americans. Works Cited "THE COLLECTION." MoMA.org. N.p., n.d. Web. 11 May 2013.
