About the Poster: Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) was an American documentary photographer and photojournalist who is perhaps best known for her photographic investigations of the consequences of the Great Depression. While working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) Lange helped to bring the plight of the poor and forgotten – particularly sharecroppers, displaced farm families, and migrant workers – to public attention

Her work was direct, tough, and unapologetic. She was a woman of strong convictions who turned down a prestigious academic fellowship to pursue (photographically) the results of forced internment of Japanese Americans during the 1940s. She later taught at the California School of Fine Arts.

This exhibition poster, from a private collection, features one of the Depression-era photographs for which Lange is best known.
