Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) is one of the most famous documentary photographers of all time. In 1935, tired of studio portraiture, she began working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA), documenting the disastrous migration of farming families to the west. She created many of the images that define the Depression in the United States in the popular imagination.
