Dorothea Lange


Dorothea Lange

“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” Dorothea Lange.

What do Dorothea Lange, today and the Hunger Games have in common? Poverty. Dorothea Lange took some amazing photographs of the poverty in the South back around the 1930’s. It is interesting that, even today, there are striking differences between the poor and the rich. Also, the recent book, The Hunger Games, brought out that idea in its moving story about a girl from the Appalachian area.
