Annie at Steep Ravine, Marin County, California, 1972
This photograph was taken at Dorothea Lange's cabin on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Steep Ravine was one of Dorothea Lange's favorite places; Dorothea and Paul Taylor rented this cabin for decades, returning often to spend a few hours or a few days enjoying life by the ocean. The cabin was simple - cold running water and no electricity; a place which invited reflection and attention to life at the moment. Annie was a friend of the family, staying at Steep Ravine at the time.
