a few great images

the photographer Dorothea Lange, famous for excellent photos that humanized the tragic consequences of the Great Depression and profoundly influenced the development of documentary photography during the great depression. She was one of several photographers that were working for a government agency, the Farm Security Administration, that wanted the state of the people to be captured for historical perspective. Jack Delano was another, and they were both incredibly good photographers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorothea_Lange
