    Migratory Cotton Picker, Eloy, Arizona, 1940, FSA Collection, Library of Congress
  • Dorothea Lange
    • That's the first day I ever made a photograph actually on the street. I put it on the wall of my studio and customers, people whom I was making portraits of would come in and glance at them. And the only comment I ever got was, "What are you going to do with this kind of thing? I didn't know. But I knew that picture was on my wall, and I knew that it was worth doing."
    White Angel Breadline, San Francisco, Ca. 1933, Oakland Museum Collection
  • Dorothea Lange
    • One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you'd be stricken blind.
