Happy Birthday Dorothea Lange

Dorothea Lange was an influential American photographer and photojournalist. Lange is best known for her Depression-era work, which gave a face to the widespread human suffering that was taking place across the country at that time. Lange's work during this period, in addition to her later work, would profoundly influence the development of documentary photography.

Written by Laura Baskes Litwin, this middle school title is great for budding photographers and those interested in learning more about this influential photographer, who lived from 1895 until 1965.
