History Of Photography

Shot this image at a wedding the whole family went to last weekend and couldn't shake the structure of Dorthea Lange's Migrant Mother photograph from the FSA project. Another reason the history of one's medium is so very important: these images are burned into our brains and inform our photographs when we least expect them to. Is my shot a great photograph? No. Is Lange's? Without question. But knowing where these things come from...thats the important part.
