Censored by the U.S. Army, Dorothea Lange's unseen photographs are the photographic record of the Japanese American internment saga. This indelible work of visual and social history confirms Dorothea Lange's stature as one of the twentieth century's greatest American photographers. Presenting 119 images--the majority of which have never been published--this book evokes the horror of a community uprooted in the early 1940s and the stark reality of the internment camps. Nationally known historians Linda Gordon and Gary Okihiro narrate the saga of Japanese American internment: from life before Executive Order 9066 to the abrupt roundups and the marginal existence in the bleak, sandswept camps.--From publisher description

Daring to look : Dorothea Lange's photographs and reports from the field by Anne Whiston Spirn( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents never-before-published photos and captions from American documentary photographer and photojournalist Dorothea Lange's (1895-1965) fieldwork in California, the Pacific Northwest, and North Carolina during 1939. Best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA), Lange's photographs humanized the consequences of the Great Depression and influenced the development of documentary photography. Lange's images of squatter camps, benighted farmers, and stark landscapes are stunning, and her captions -- which range from simple explanations of settings to historical notes and biographical sketches -- add unexpected depth, bringing her subjects and their struggles unforgettably to life, often in their own words

An American exodus; a record of human erosion in the Thirties by Dorothea Lange( Book )

17 editions published between 1939 and 1975 in English and French and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exodus from the land is not new. Since the Middle Ages in Europe an unending stream of rural folk has fed the growth of cities and furnished manpower for rising manufactures. In America throughout our national history people have migrated in a double stream. One current, itself a part of the 500-year old stream of Europe, has drawn off surplus population from land already settled in order to urbanize and industrialize the United States. The other current, described a century ago by the Frenchman de Toqueville, has moved steadily westward with "the solemnity of a providential event... like a deluge of men rising unabatedly, and daily driven onward by the hand of Gof." Its goal was a piece of unoccupied domain for each family to assute a living through tillage of the soil. The generation of our fathers saw the end of the wester frontier of free land. And it is now a full decade since the doors of our factories were open wide to boys from the farms. Indeed, in the face of industrial collapse in 1929 millions of Americans sought refuge in recoil to the land from which they had sprung... Now our people are leaving the soil again. They are being expelled by powerful forces of mans and of Nature. They crowd into cities and towns near the plantations. Once more great numbers of landseekers thek west. This contemporary exodus is our theme. It attains its most dramatic form on the deltas, the prairies, and the plains of the South, and in the tide of people which moves to the Pacific Coast. But this time the cities and tows are already burdened with unemployed, and opportunity upon the land is sharply restricted
An American exodus : a record of human erosion by Dorothea Lange( Book )

22 editions published between 1939 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1939, An American Exodus is one of the masterpieces of the documentary genre. Produced by incomparable documentary photographer Dorothea Lange with text by her husband, Paul Taylor, An American Exodus was taken in the early 1930s while the couple were working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) The book documents the rural poverty of the depression-era exodus that brought over 300,000 migrants to California in search of farmwork, a westward mass migration driven by economic deprivation as opposed to the Manifest Destiny of 19th century pioneers. This facsimile edition of the original volume reintroduces this sought-after work of art -- a pioneering book that was among the first to combine photographs with oral testimony -- to a contemporary audience, providing an insight into the struggles of the Depression as well as offering a profound and timeless look at the human condition

Dorothea Lange by Mark Durden( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was during the depth of the Great Depression of the late 1920s and 30s, when at least 14 million people were out of work in the USA, that Dorothea Lange (1895 - 1965) first ventured out on the streets with her camera. In 1935 a report on migrant workers, illustrated with Lange's photographs, came to the attention of Roy Stryker and in response he invited Lange to become a member of the Farm Security Administration (FSA) photographic unit. Like Stryker, Lange believed that photography was a tool of political action, and this was no more apparent then when the federal government responded to the starvation crisis shortly after the San Francisco News received Lange's photographs - it quickly supplied 20,000 pounds of food to feed hungry migrants at the camps. Lange's championing of black migrants can be seen in the photograph 'Plantation Overseer and his Field Hands' of 1936, in which Lange captured the image of a man who exemplified the racist, exploitative and un-democratic attitudes that were rife in Southern plantation life. The evidence of racism revealed in this photograph - and others - is countered by Lange's many dignifying portraits of black subjects. When the bitter years of the Depression were overtaken by the advent of World War II, she continued to demonstrate her opposition to the poor treatment of migrants by opposing the relocation of 110,000 American Japanese to internment camps. She recorded the evacuation in Northern California after being assigned by the War Relocation Authority. In 1955, after a bout of ill health, Lange continued to work on contemporary social issues, namely a photo-essay for Life magazine, a sensitive study of the work of a Yugoslav-American public defender, representing those who could not afford to pay their own legal expenses. Lange watched and photographed him on and off for a year, catching the reflective moments of his defendants' body language. Lange was the first woman to be awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship (1941) and was placed on the Honour Roll of the American Society of Magazine Photographers in 1963. She was honoured with major solo exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Art (1960) and the Oakland Art Museum (1960) and she began preparing a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York shortly before she died in 1965
