Synopsis: 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.

About the Author: Dorothea Lange is best-known for the photographs she made in the 1930s when she began her pioneering work for the Farm Security Administration. From her documentation of California’s migratory workers who fled dust and drought on the Great Plains and in the Southwest to seek a new life in the West, to her telling images of the desperate conditions of the sharecroppers of the South, she sought to portray the social turmoil and injustice caused by the economic upheaval of the time. During World War II, Lange photographed Japanese Americans in internment camps, documented the struggles of women and minority workers in wartime industries at California shipyards, and captured the founding of the United Nations. She later traveled and photographed throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. In 1941, she received a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship.

Linda Gordon is a professor of humanities and history at New York University. For the first part of her career, she wrote about the historical roots of social policy debates in the U.S., publishing several prize-winning books, including Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: The History of Birth Control in America (1976). She has written at length on Dorothea Lange, including Impounded: Dorothea Lange and the Censored Images of Japanese American Internment (with Gary Okihoro, 2006), based on a group of never-published photographs of the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II that Gordon discovered, as well as the Bancroft Prize-winning book Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits (2009).

Book Description aperture, United States, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Aperture Masters of Photography Series has become a touchstone of Aperture s longstanding commitment to introducing the history and art of photography to a broader public. Each volume provides an ongoing comprehensive view of the artists who have helped shape the medium. Initially presented as the History of Photography Series in 1976, the first volume featured Henri Cartier-Bresson and was edited by legendary French publisher Robert Delpire, who cofounded the series with Aperture s own Michael Hoffman. Twenty volumes have been published in total, each of them devoted to an image-maker whose achievements have accorded them vital importance in the history of photography. Each volume presents an evocative selection of the photographer s life s work, introduced with a foreword by a notable curator or historian of each artist. The series will be relaunched in Fall 2014, beginning with books on Paul Strand and Dorothea Lange, elegantly updated and refreshed for today s photography-hungry audiences, and introducing new, image-by-image commentary and chronologies of the artists lives for each of the previously published titles.The series will also include entirely new titles on individual artists. The Aperture Masters of Photography Series is an unparalleled library of both historical and contemporary photographers, and serves as an accessible compilation for anyone studying the history of photography.
