Summary

Summary

Dorothea Lange's photographs record the effect of the Great Depression on "invisible" Americans. Her studies of poor migrant workers during their search for day labor in the Southwest drew much-needed attention to their plight, and her images of the Japanese-American Internment of World War II describe marginalization more meaningfully than words ever could.
