”That store is where all business is done, where everything is transacted, where all loans are given, where they’re kept in hock forever. That store is everything.” — Dorothea Lange
Alternate Title and/or Date
During her lifetime Lange’s photographs appeared in a variety of exhibitions and publications, sometimes years after they were taken. This often resulted in multiple titles for the same image.
