Photo Prompt -- #7
Below is one of documentary photographer Dorothea Lange's most famous photos, Migrant Mother, taken in 1936 in Nipomo, CA., during the Great Depression. California was overrun by impoverished families fleeing the "Dust Bole" where drought had forced closure of thousands upon thousands of farms.
Dorothea's notes: "Mother of seven children. Age thirty-two. Destitute in pea pickers' camp ... because of failure of the early pea crop. These people had just sold their tires to buy food."
The mother was later identified as Florence Owens Thompson. She died in 1983 at the age of 80. The podcast is an excerpt of an interview later in her life. The photo of her in 1978 is by Tim Benson of the Modesto Bee.
Use the photo and interview information to create a new character and write about the moment of the photo, describing the setting, sounds, details, what was going through your character's head. Choose the genre photo prompt (also the link to read earlier prompts and responses) and use the keyword: #7
