Dorothea Lange took thisВ photographВ in 1936, while employed by the U.S. governmentвЂ™s Farm Security Administration (FSA) program, formed during the Great Depression to raise awareness of and provide aid to impoverished farmers.

Recalling her encounter with Thompson years later, she said, вЂњI saw and approached the hungry and desperate mother, as if drawn by a magnet. I do not remember how I explained my presence or my camera to her, but I do remember she asked me no questions. I made fiveВ exposures, working closer and closer from the same direction.вЂќ 1 One photograph from that shoot, now known asВ Migrant Mother,В was widely circulated to magazines and newspapers and became aВ symbolВ of the plight ofВ migrant farm workers during theВ Great Depression.
