Dorothea Lange

As its a wet and slow afternoon I thought I would just do a quick post to pass on some study links for Dorothea Lange:

Dorothea Lange (May 26, 1895 – October 11, 1965) was an influential American documentary photographer and photojournalist, best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Lange’s photographs humanized the consequences of the Great Depression and influenced the development of documentary photography.

A biography worthy of its subject (Linda Gordon’s DOROTHEA LANGE)
@ The historian’s lens

One of the best people and documentary photographers of all time

No she didn’t go digital!

A great book on her work was published by Phaidon and written by Mark Durden (ISBN 0-7148-4619-8)
