From the Publisher
"Dorothea Lange's images serve as witness to the plight of hundreds of thousands of Americans who migrated westward in search of work, food, and money during the Great Depression. Her iconic photography, including several previously unpublished images from her archive at the Oakland Museum of California, is studied here with a depth and scope unavailable in any other volume." Dorothea Lange: The Heart and Mind of a Photographer puts into perspective a life devoted to humanity and sheds new light on a body of work that broadened the horizons of photography even as it served a public purpose. Essays and recollections by Pierre Borhan, A. D. Coleman, Ralph Gibson, and Sam Stourdze accompany the photographs.
