Page history last edited by Parker 10 years, 11 months ago

Milton Meltzer wrote a biography about Lange and it explains many of Lange's trips and so called adventures. This book talked a lot about langes photography and its effects and roles in the great depression. Many of her photographs have to do with foreign laborers who worked all day and she photographed them and there lives. There were many people who played larges roles in her life andCopies of the reports Lange and Taylor produced reached Roy Stryker, who offered Lange a job with the Resettlement Administration in August 1935.
