Florence Owens Thompson, a migrant worker mother, in California 1936. It has become an iconic image of that age. The Great Depression and Dust Bowl era of American history captured some powerful images.
This is an alternative shot to one of the most iconic images of the 1930's and the great depression. Photographer, Dorothea Lange captures young mother Florence Owens Thompson sitting with her 2 children in this image. Mrs. Thompson would go on in history to be known as the "Migrant Mother", although she was not happy about the release of the images.

Photojournalist, Dorothea Lange took this photo of an anguished mother and her suffering children during the Great Depression. This candid photograph has always stuck with me as it successfully set a tone for this event. The shadows & the capture of detail in the woman's face is much more than just a mother & her children, but rather provides emotional depth for the viewer.
