攝影師桃樂絲蘭格(Dorothea Lange)出生於1895年新澤西州的霍博肯(Hoboken)。蘭格最為人所知的事蹟是她用作品記錄了移民工人的貧困生活狀況,這些移民是在1920年代晚期及1930年代大蕭條時期大批湧入加州的。而她的照片讓外人注意到這些移民的困境。蘭格用她的照片來記錄大蕭條時期的艱困景象並希望藉由這些景象來激發行政機構及個人採取行動來改善這些困境。有了她的照片,蘭格能夠捕捉並呈現出大蕭條及其他事件加諸在全國人民身上及心靈上的折磨。

Photographer Dorothea Lange was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, in 1895. Lange is best known for her work documenting poor conditions of the migrant workers who traveled in large numbers to California during the Great Depression of the late 1920s and 1930s. Her photographs brought much-needed attention to their plight. Lange used photography to document the difficult period of the Depression and to motivate agencies and individuals to take action to improve the situation. With her photographs Lange was able to capture the emotional and physical toll that the Depression and other events took on human beings across the country.
