"You could write a book of 500 pages on just the conditions of us. We have to stay lean all the time, work 13 to 16 hours for 85 or 90 cents.” — Texas People, Quoted in Dorothea Lange Field Notes
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.
