I am fascinated by Dorthea Lange and her photography. Here is a little bit about her from BYU’s Museum of Art.
Known for her candid and sympathetic depiction of people, Dorothea Lange is
one of the most revered photographers of the twentieth century. For over four
decades she explored the human psyche through portraiture and
documentary photography. The probing portraits of her early career
prepared Lange to photograph the people involved in the tumultuous
events of the San Francisco labor strikes of 1934, the Great Depression, and
the Japanese internment during World War II. Her 1936 photograph, The
Migrant Mother, is one of the great icons of the American century.
If you just can’t get enough of her, there is a current Dorthea Lange exhibition at BYU’s Museum of Art, showcasing a Life Magazine photo spread that she worked on with Ansel Adams. I will be at the museum at the end of April…anyone want to come?
