Legendary Lange Great Depression photographer Dorothea Lange at the CSUS Library Gallery. SN&R, 02.12.09.

Dorothea Lange established herself as a successful portrait photographer in the early 20th century, taking pictures of wealthy and famous folks. But it was images captured for the federal Resettlement Administration, including the iconic "Migrant Mother," that made her work famous and gave a face to the Great Depression. The CSUS Library Gallery has culled some of her well-known and lesser-known photographs of migrant farmers and their shantytowns captured in California. You are hereby advised not to miss this show.
