--Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) American documentary photographer
Above: A deer at Bay's Mountain Park in Kingsport, TN - so not really a buck in the wild. It looks to be the same deer resting in just about the same spot as I photographed earlier this year. As Lange said, pick a theme and work it. :)
What Ansel Adams was to landscape photography, Dorothea Lange was to documentary photography. She is best known for her work with the Farm Security Administration during the Great Depression, documenting the plight of the poor and forgotten in rural America. You will probably recognize her most famous photograph entitled Migrant Mother. If you've never seen Lange's emotional and gripping work, head over to one of my favorite websites, Shorpy.com where dozens and dozens of her photographs are displayed, along with descriptions (and the ability to view each photo full size).
