This image of the Migrant Mother by Dorothea Lange has been part of my mental collection since high school. Though at the time I was unaware of the importance of Lange's work, I always was drawn to the beauty and strength of the woman in the photo and the distant look in her eyes as she unwittingly helps shield her children from the camera. Lange almost didn't take the photos from this camp- as she was done with her assignment, yet felt a tug to go back to the pea picker's camp. It reminds me to always listen to my inner voice that says "stop and take the time to capture the image."
