9780140321050: Dorothea Lange: Life through the Camera (Women of our time)

Dorothea Lange (1895–1965) was a highly acclaimed social realist photographer who recorded one of the most important historical periods in American social history. In 1935, tired of studio portraiture, she began working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA), and created many of the images that define the Depression and the disastrous migration of farming families to the West in the popular imagination. This monograph is a concise introduction to her work, with an essay, 55 photographs and picture-by-picture commentaries.

Review:

'Lange's work defines an era of destitution and drought, and still resonates even now. This is the perfect introduction to one of the world's greatest photojournalists.
Practical Photography

'Lange was the first woman to be awarded the Guggenheim Photography Fellowship and this book showcases her most famous work, an arresting 55-picture, chronologically ordered documentation of the lives of migrant workers during the Great Depression.'
The Independent
