The Cotton Pickers

Recommended Posts

I've been working on a film called The Cotton Pickers. Film also has some migratory farm workers and dustbowl refugees from the 1930's in it. So it not 100% cotton pickers.

I thought about breaking up the carrot and potato workers into other films, but am not that interested in it so lumped em all together with about 75% of them as cotton workers. And really they were as the name says ...migratory and picked whatever they could to make a buck.

About 80% of material was shot by Dorothea Lange. Here is one of Lange's less known, but still iconic shots. Photo has 15 - 20 minutes of post work by me. Almost everything out of the LOC are flat, raw scans...and dirty.

Lange was a helluva gal and photog! I've come to known her quite well post processing hundreds of her photos. But I probably spent the most time on this photo.
