Dorothea Lange: Piercing portraits from US history.

Recommended Posts

Yes, Dorothea Lange was a wonderful photographer, as well as providing my favourite photographic quote: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera”...

I too have great regard for Lange, she made the switch from the studio to concerned photographer rather better than Margaret Bourke-White (great artistry though, see her cover of first issue of Life magazine). I consider Lange the best of the FSA photographers even including Walker Evans.

I once attended a B&W printing session of W. Eugene Smith at his downtown Manhattan loft. We had met when I played at a jam session at the loft awhile before. He was a jazz lover.
