About Dorothea Lange
Dorothea Lange was an iconic American photojournalist and documentary photographer whose iconic photographs of poor farm workers during the Great Depression were responsible for bringing to national attention the plights of farm workers across the United States. Her iconic images also influenced future documentary photography in no small way. In 1941, she won a Guggenheim prize with her 1936 photograph Migrant Mother, which is regarded as one of the most iconic images of the Great Depression.
She married painter Maynard Dixon in 1920. The couple had two sons, John and Daniel. In 1935, she and Maynard got divorced and she married her second husband Paul Schuster Taylor. She and Paul remained married until her death in 1965.
As a child, she contracted polio, which caused her to walk with a limp for the rest of her life.
In 2008, the then Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger posthumously inducted her into the California Hall of Fame.
