Dorothea Lange, one of the most prolific photographers employed by the Farm Security Administration, produced thousands of images depicting a cross-section of Americans. Lange showed Americans the real face on poverty in their country. She wanted people to see themselves in her haunting images, and the Roosevelt administration used them to rally support for the New Deal’s more liberal and redistributive aspects. She stated, “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
