Born in Hoboken, New Jersey (1895) - Dorothea Lange was a notable photographer (with a very keen eye) whose impressive photographic work (documenting the decidedly rough and realistic side of Depression-era America) stands tall today as some of the very best images, ever.

Proudly presented by Dorothea's goddaughter, Elizabeth Patridge - This well-researched pictorial-biography takes a close-up look at Lange's life and career as an outstanding camerawoman whose stark, striking, b&w images have faithfully documented a very important part of the bleak side of American history in the 20th century.

*Note* - In 1965 - Dorothea Lange (70 at the time) died from throat cancer.
