This image was inspired by Dorothea Lange's classic photograph of Florence Thompson and her family who like many thousands became part of a diaspora due to the nightmare that became known as the 'Dust Bowl' or 'Dirty 30's. I tried to emphasise the strength of the determined stoic look of her eyes by streaming volumetric orange dusty light from her eyes and face, with the desert sand in the foreground and the semi buried ruined farmhouse!
