A Beautiful Collection Featuring the Groundbreaking Work of the Legendary Female Photojournalist.

American photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) was an overtly political photographer, who used her camera to capture an era of social change and struggle in America. Her iconic photographs document the intensity of human life and the power of human emotion. Lange's impact on photojournalism can still be felt today.

DOROTHEA LANGE by Mark Durden, is an illustrated overview of the work of this legendary photographer. This book documents the development of her photography from the mid-thirties to early forties through a chronological sequence of 55 black and white images with accompanying text offering insight into her emotionally and politically-charged work.

Tired of studio portraiture, Lange began working for the Farm Security Administration in 1935, where she created many of the photographs that define the Depression and Western migration of farming families in the popular imagination. Included in this collection of photographic essays is one of the most iconic images of the twentieth century--the Migrant Mother, also known as Migrant Madonna, taken in California in 1936.

DOROTHEA LANGE provides an elegantly produced introduction to the acclaimed social realist photographer, whose photographs continue to serve as a powerful testament to the trials and depths of humanity.
