Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother is one of the most iconic images of the Great Depression. The challenging circumstances portrayed in Lange’s photographs are reminders of what many are experiencing today.
I had been looking for an image that speaks to me - and all of us - at these uncertain times. I have struggled until I got this e-postcard from my home in the Czech Republic, from my parents.
