Where do you live?

This morning I heard this on NPR, in a story about Dorothea Lange:

In fact, only once did Lange make a self-portrait. When she was teaching photography in the 1950s, Lange liked to assign students to bring in photographs of where they lived, something profound about what their lives were really about. One year, students challenged her to complete the assignment.

"What she brought was a photograph of her twisted foot," Gordon says.
