About this title


A collection of the photographer's works captures the essence of Ireland


As she demonstrated so indelibly in her photographs of Dust Bowl refugees, the great documentary photographer understood, above all else, the relationship between people and land. Inspired by a book analyzing the social and economic traditions of rural Ireland, Lange traveled to the country in 1954 with her son, writer Daniel Dixon, to record these soulful images of farmers, peasants and schoolchildren. Gerry Mullins' rediscovery of these photographs, most of them published here for the first time, is a major find; his and Dixon's appreciation set Lange's work in context without letting the words get in the way.
