Dorothea Lange’s Legacy
The twin cataclysms of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl inspired a group of socially conscious photographers to capture the mass exodus of Americans from their homes and farms. Photographer Dorothea Lange rose to preeminence with empathetic images of migrant workers, suffering families, and tortured landscapes that seared the effects of the Depression into American conscious.
“Dorothea Lange’s America” tells the story of heartbreak, resilience, and determination through beautiful lifetime prints by the legendary documentary photographer, including photographs by Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, and Russell Lee.
