“During the depression Lange photographed the homeless men who wandered the streets. Such pictures as White Angel Breadline, shot in 1932, showed the hopelessness of these men and received immediate recognition from the renowned photographers of Group f.64. This led to Lange’s being hired by the federal Resettlement Administration (later called the Farm Security Administration) to bring the conditions of the poor to public attention. Her photographs of California’s migrant workers, captioned with the subjects’ own words, were so effective that the state established camps for the migrants.”

FDR created the new deal for the people who didn’t have jobs of were retired.
