Category:Migrant Mother by Dorothea Lange

English: The "Migrant Mother" — renowned image by photographer Dorothea Lange, of Florence Owens Thompson in 1936. Photographed at "Pea-Pickers Camp" — in Nipomo, San Luis Obispo County, central California. From a Resettlement Administration documentation project, the photograph has become one of the iconic images of the Great Depression. There are two versions of this image, an original one and an slightly retouched one, attributed to Lange, where the thumb gripping around the vertical log in the bottom right is appearing as it were quite transparent. Other variants were created by various people, for example by cropping or colorizing.
