Some things never change, unfortunately. Dorothea Lange’s famous Migrant Mother portrait of Florence Owens Thompson from 1936 was of another time, place, and some will say, context. But one could argue the essence is similar to this image captured by WyoFile contributor Matthew Copeland of a young mother on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Both are portraits of American poverty in a land of plenty. Copeland’s photo was featured in Tuesday’s article, Pure Poverty, as part of our series exploring the state of childhood health on the reservation. Look for the next installment in the upcoming edition of WyoFile.
