This book explores the extensive and impactful body of work by photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965), who sought to create pictures that were both "important and useful."

Lange's portraits played a crucial role in shaping public understanding of social issues in the twentieth century, particularly focusing on marginalized communities. The book examines Lange's early portraits of Indigenous people, her depictions of striking workers, migrant farmers, and various marginalized groups, including Japanese Americans in internment camps.

The authors emphasize Lange's compassionate approach to capturing the common humanity of her subjects, providing insights into her roots in studio portraiture and highlighting the enduring relevance of her work in addressing issues of identity, social, economic, and racial inequalities.

Published in collaboration with the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
