My thoughts: I have long admired the photograph of the woman with her children revealing the impact of the Great Depression on the poor. This image invokes such emotion and sympathy. Never knowing who snapped the image recording it for thousands to see, it was a privilege to learn a bit about the individual responsible.
|Migrant Mother by Dorothea Lange|
The uncorrected proof I received, showed the illustrations in basic neutrals with only touches of color. The figures are basic and look somewhat abstract in form. This is in keeping with the bleak, bare story Dorothea Lange captured in her photography.
A children's book, this is a good introduction to how capturing the faces and emotions with a camera can benefit generations to come and tell the story.
DISCLOSURE: I received an uncorrected proof to facilitate a review. Opinions are my own, alone.
