Like many other art forms, photography is an enthralling field that heavily looks back upon the pioneers of it for inspiration. Photography is nothing without the innovative figures that pushed the boundaries of what photography is. Whether it’s a figure from the early 20th century or someone that is still working today, there will be iconic photographers for as long as photography exists.
Dorothea Lange is one of the most influential and iconic photographers primarily due to her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration. Considering the Great Depression was such an alien-like time in history, the photographs from it are moments in time that’ll live on longer than any human could.
