Best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA), Lange's photographs humanized the consequences of the Great Depression and influenced the development of documentary photography. Lange's images of squatter camps, benighted farmers, and stark landscapes are stunning, and her captions -- which range from simple explanations of settings to historical notes and biographical sketches -- add unexpected depth, bringing her subjects and their struggles unforgettably to life, often in their own words."@en ;
