Blog Post #5
I have always been really interested in photography, so as these eras progress I’m happy to see more artists that I’m familiar with and can connect with. Dorothea Lange is a famous photographer that I believe did an excellent job photographing and documenting the Great Depression. Her portraiture and photographs of the time as a whole really focus on the emotion and ultimately the devestation of the people during this terrible time. I chose to use one of her more famous photographs Migrant Mother because it not only shows the emotion of the mother but it also portrays the emotion of the young children as well. This photo has a lot of artistic value in the photography world and on top of that it is a great portrait to display the emotion of the era.
