Derek, I wonder if Ms Lange has been in touch regarding abuse of her image yet?
I just saw a story on the news the other day about the picture in this poster. They interviewed one of the little girls hiding behind her mother. The picture was taken during the great depression. The woman they interviewed said that her mother was embarrassed by the photo because she didn't want people to know who poor they were.
It was taken in Feb of 1936 in Nipomo, California. The photographer is Dorothea Lange. She died in 1965, so I guess she won't be calling.
How disgusting to use this iconic picture for their sordid little advert.
Eeerm, they didn't. Monsieur le Pye did. And Ty, I was fairly sure Ms Lange would have gone to a better place.....
