Name of photographer who photographed other people's work..

Can anyone remember the name of the artist who took pictures of someone else's photographs and then mounted an exhibition of them claiming that since she took the picture of the picture they were now her art?

I think it was Dorothea Lange's depression era pictures for which the copyright was now lapsed or public domain.

Caused quite a stir at the time - engendering a debate about copyright, the image making process and the validity of photography as art at all.

Just cant recall her name!

Ideas?
