MONTEZUMA – The Stauth Memorial Museum is presenting a targeted exhibition of original lifetime prints by the legendary documentary photographer Dorothea Lange as a result of Aug. 14. 

“Dorothea Lange’s The united states: Photographs of the Great Depression”  is highlighting with oversized exhibition prints of her seminal portraits from the Terrific Despair, including White Angel Breadline, Migratory Farm Employee, and, most famously, Migrant Mother – an emblematic photo that came to personify pleasure and resilience in the encounter of abject poverty in 1930s America. 

Lange herself had recognised adversity early in everyday living. She was stricken with polio at age 7, and impoverished when her father disappeared from the scene at age 12, so she and her mom lived in Hoboken and rode the ferry to decreased Manhattan, to performing-class community teeming with immigrants. Through that period Lange uncovered images from a various set of academics. She opened a flourishing portrait studio that catered to San Francisco’s expert course and monied elite soon after relocating there in 1918.
