In this video from Picturing America on Screen, cinematographer Dyanna Taylor shares her earliest childhood influence: her grandmother, the renowned photographer Dorothea Lange. Taylor travels to the Library of Congress to see her grandmother's collection of photographs, including Migrant Mother, an iconic image of the 1930s. The photograph shows a poverty-stricken mother with her children and is best known for its emotional imagery and symbolic representation of Depression-era America.
