Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

A giant of 20th-century photography, Dorothea Lange found many of her subjects among the impoverished farmers and sharecroppers eking out a living during the Great Depression. Indeed, her photo of the care-worn face of a migrant mother flanked an icon of the era. Given our political moment, it seems like a good time to revisit Lange's work and its commitment to social justice. This career survey, the first in 50 years, focuses on the relationship between Lange’s photos and texts associated with them, including her photo-essays for Life Magazine, as well as the various books that used her work as illustrations.
