when the face is the story...




Human Erosion in California (Migrant Mother), 1936

Dorothea Lange

*

Lange’s ability to capture – in one frame – the full scale of human myth has few equals. Sally Mann, of course, is one.

Oh Dorothea Lange was a poet with her camera.... a poet who could speak without words, allowing the viewer to transform the images into the words they needed. She has always been a favorite. Another you might like, Garry Winogrand. Not the beauty of what Dorothea could show us, but stories to tell.... images to savor.
