Dorothea Lange’s most timeless image, Migrant Mother, Nipomo, California, 1936, was taken as Lange was walking through a pea picker’s camp on the way home from a Farm Security Administration field trip. Lange noticed this woman with her seven children. Without work, they had been living on wild birds. This work is masterfully reproduced here in this hand-pulled dust-grain photogravure by Aperture, a nonprofit organization committed to the advancement of photography, in conjunction with the Dorothea Lange Collection of the Oakland Museum in California.
