Dorothea Lange: Aperture Masters of PhotographyDorothea Lange: Aperture Masters of Photography

Published by Aperture.
Text by Linda Gordon.

Dorothea Lange (1895–1965) documented rural poverty for the federal Resettlement Administration and Farm Security Administration from 1935 to 1939. Her powerful images--from migrant workers in California fleeing the “dustbowl,” to struggling Southern sharecroppers-- became icons of the era. She later photographed Japanese Americans in internment camps during World War II and traveled throughout Europe and Asia. This book presents 42 of the greatest images from throughout Lange’s career, including some of her work done abroad. She possessed the ability, as she put it, to photograph “things as they are” and through this her photographs give us “more about the subjects than just the faces.” It is no wonder that Edward Steichen called her the greatest documentary photographer in the United States. Linda Gordon contributes a new biographical essay and an image-by-image commentary to accompany a newly selected set of photographs. A professor of humanities and history at New York University, she has written at length on Dorothea Lange. Her 2009 book, Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits, won the Bancroft Prize.
“Lange’s work defines an era of destitution and drought, and still resonates even now. This is the perfect introduction to one of the world’s greatest photojournalists.”--Practical Photography, from a review of the original edition.

Dorothea Lange: The Crucial YearsDorothea Lange: The Crucial Years

Published by La Fábrica.
Text by Oliva María Rubio, Sandra Philips, Jack von Euw.

In 1935, the photographer Dorothea Lange joined Franklin D. Roosevelt's Farm Security Administration project, charged with the task of inventing an iconography that would record and convey the tales of Depression-era America. It was a task that forced Lange's photography to evolve from its then portrait-based character, as she stepped out into the streets to document the woes of the Great Depression, thus creating what is today her most legendary body of work. Gathering powerful images of displaced farmers, sharecroppers and migrant workers (such as the classic "Migrant Mother") with her Graflex camera, Lange put a human face to this difficult era, and revolutionized documentary photography. She obtained results without forcing them, instead just "sitting down on the ground with people, letting children look at your camera with their dirty, grimy little hands, and putting their fingers on the lens, and you just let them, because you know that if you will behave in a generous manner, you are apt to receive it." The Decisive Years surveys the various topics that Lange approached throughout the 1930s and 1940s, with an important selection of her work for the War Relocation Authority (on the evacuation and relocation of the American citizens of Japanese origin)--only a few of which have ever been reproduced in catalogues--and her documentations of farmers' communities in California and Arizona, and the Conference of the United Nations in San Francisco.
Dorothea Lange was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, in 1895. In 1941, Lange was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for excellence in photography. She was a co-founder of Aperture magazine.

Dorothea Lange: An American ExodusDorothea Lange: An American Exodus

A Record of Human Erosion

Published by Editions Jean-Michel Place.
Photographs by Dorothea Lange. Contributions by Paul Taylor.

First published in 1939, An American Exodus is one of the masterpieces of the documentary genre. Produced by incomparable documentary photographer Dorothea Lange with text by her husband, Paul Taylor, An American Exodus was taken in the early 1930s while the couple were working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) The book documents the rural poverty of the depression-era exodus that brought over 300,000 migrants to California in search of farm work, a westward mass migration driven by economic deprivation as opposed to the Manifest Destiny of 19th century pioneers. This facsimile edition of the original volume reintroduces this sought-after work of artÛa pioneering book that was among the first to combine photographs with oral testimonyÛto a contemporary audience, providing an insight into the struggles of the Depression as well as offering a profound and timeless look at the human condition.
