Dorothea Lange, Migrant Mother, and American Photography - Livestream. Hosted by Robert Kelleman - Washington, DC History & Culture.
Dorothea Lange: Seeing People
National Gallery of Art - Washington, DC
November 5, 2023 - March 31, 2024
During her long, prolific, and groundbreaking career, the American photographer Dorothea Lange made some of the most iconic portraits of the 20th century. Dorothea Lange: Seeing People reframes Lange’s work through the lens of portraiture, highlighting her unique ability to discover and reveal the character and resilience of those she photographed.
Featuring some 100 photographs, the exhibition addresses her innovative approaches to picturing people, emphasizing her work on social issues including economic disparity, migration, poverty, and racism.
Dorothea Lange (born Dorothea Margaretta Nutzhorn; May 26, 1895 – October 11, 1965) was an American documentary photographer and photojournalist, best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Lange's photographs influenced the development of documentary photography and humanized the consequences of the Great Depression.
Migrant Mother is a photograph taken in 1936 in Nipomo, California by American photographer Dorothea Lange during her spell at the Resettlement Administration (later the Farm Security Administration). Since then, the photograph has become an icon of the Great Depression and because it is in the public domain, it has been reproduced to serve as advertisements and much more. Today, Lange's work is considered to be a part of the classic canon of American art and international photography. The 28.3 by 21.8 cm (11 1/8 by 8 9/16 in) gelatin silver print photograph depicts two children burying their faces in their mother who anxiously gazes off into the distance. A print is housed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
