蓝吉本来是一个照相馆的摄影师,但是在经济大萧条 (
Great Depression) 的时候,她带着相机离开照相馆,走到街道上拍摄。她帮无家可归者所照的照片,使她在政府新设立的机构里得到一份工作,这个机构的主要工作就是在帮助那些需要帮助的人。

蓝吉在重置管理局 (Resettlement Administration) ,现在称为美国联邦农场安全管理局 (Farm Security AdministrationFSA) 工作时所拍摄的照片,使她声名大噪。

What do you see when you look through the lens of a camera? Many people take photographs to remember a special occasion. Photographs can also show us what is happening in another country or in our own backyard. Photographer Dorothea Lange is well known for her pictures of forgotten Americans.

She began her career as a studio photographer, but during the Great Depression, Lange took her camera out of the studio and onto the streets. Her photographs of the homeless led to her getting a job in one of the new government agencies established to help those in need.

Lange became famous for the photographs she took during her work for the federal Resettlement Administration (RA), later called the Farm Security Administration (FSA.)
