Abstract:

Daniel Rhodes Dixon is the elder son of photographer Dorothea Lange, who was responsible for some of the most unforgettable photographs of the Great Depression, and painter Maynard Dixon, the preeminent interpreter of the American Southwest and its native peoples. As a child, Daniel came to recognize their extraordinary talents, but his view of them changed dramatically during the Depression, when he and his younger brother John were placed in a series of foster homes, never knowing when they might see their parents again. While telling the story of two of this country's most original artists from a uniquely personal perspective, Child of Giants is also about gifts and curses - the story of every child who must find his own path in life from under the shadow of formidable parents.
