🖤#SelfPortrait as Florence Owens Thompson🖤 #MigrantMother by #DorotheaLange, 1936. Florence was the most famous face in the nation after this photo was published, skyrocketing Lange into the art historical canon. She was working 16 hour days, living under a bridge, and provided for her family as best she could given the apocalyptic circumstances the Dust Bowl brought with it. Lange didn’t ask her story or even her name when she shot this portrait. Florence was the nameless face of a generation. She is a true American Hero.
