Dorothea Lange – Woman Photographer

Chris and I saw a wonderful movie “Grab a Hunk of Lightning” yesterday about the life of Dorothea Lane.

The movie is quite moving about this extraordinary women photographer.  The movie is rather long, but if you watch just the first 10 minutes, you will get a great glimpse of the woman who lived in a visual world.

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.

Here are a few of her photographs that really caught my attention.

  1. Would certainly like to watch that when I get a chance, in the meantime those are interesting pictures. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine that various parts of history were ever real, thank God for the documentarians such as she!

    Thank you for sharing and paying tribute in essence. 😀
