9780142300244: Restless Spirit: The Life and Work of Dorothea Lange

Dorothea Lange chose to be an "artist" during a time when family was supposed to come first for a woman. Her passion was photographing people. During her career, Dorothea Lange captured some of the most desperate and beautiful faces America has seen in photographs. She did her most celebrated work in the 1930s and 40s during the depression years and the second World War. Restless Spirit: The Life and Work of Dorothea Lange includes over sixty of Lange's extraordinary photographs printed in high quality duotones, and chronicles Lange's life from her childhood on the Lower East Side of New York, through her early years as a portrait photographer in San Francisco, to her famous work for the government photographing starving migrant workers in California. Also included are her heart-breaking photographs of Japanese Americans interned on the West Coast during World War II.Author Elizabeth Partridge has woven Lange's own words into her book, creating not just another biography, but an intimate portrait of the artist who put faces on some of the darkest episodes in America's history Restless Spirit presents a magnificent showcase of work that will not soon be forgotten.

From the Publisher:

Written by Dorothea Lange's goddaughter
Restless Spirit is a history lesson, a biography, and an art exhibit rolled into one--and it's written by someone who knew Dorothea well. For children, Dorothea Lange is fascinating to read about because she was so passionate about her work and about the hard times she lived in. This book covers her life from 1895 to 1965 and includes the Depression, the Japanese American Internment, World War II on the homefront and contains 87 photographs. If you look at the cover of the book, you can get a good idea what Dorothe'a Lange's life was about. It's perfect for history class, for a book report, and best of all, it's a great story of a fascinating life. It also uses lots of quotes that came directly from Dorothea, herself.)
