It's like a white rural version of...

...Margaret Bourke-White's famous shot, "There's No Way Like the American Way", also from 1937.

Ms. Lange...

...shows us how it's done. Again.

Incredible Shot

It made me think of "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck.

Magnificent

Now THAT is a photograph. Such powerful social commentary captured in a single image. Lange couldn't have gotten a better shot.
