Dorothea Lange 1895-1965.
"Bring the viewer to your side, include him in your thought. He is not a bystander. You have the power to increase his perceptions and conceptions."
Lange's secret was to use modernist techniques to create striking images of people but to never let the former overshadow the latter.
She saw herself first as a journalist and a photographer second. she worked with a burning desire to effect social change by informing the public of suffering far away.
