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. What a wonderful movie. Thanks, Cee. I can’t stop watching it, but I have to (lunch time). I will definitely go back and finish it. Helen

  2. 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. 😀

I appreciate you thinking of me for an award. I have had a lot of fun with awards in the past. I think awards are a fantastic tool to help out people who are just starting their blogging adventure. I've been here awhile now.

My best award is that you somehow still come to visit me when ever you get a chance. It's a thrill and joy to share my photography and life with all of you. Thanks.
