Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Internationally famous documentary photographer Lange (1895-1965) spent six weeks in Ireland in 1954. This book of over 100 black-and-white photographs depicting the people and customs of Irish country life is the result of that trip. Lange took her camera to the countryside to photograph the lives of rural Irish shopkeepers, farmers, and schoolchildren involved in daily chores and in ordinary activity. Best known for her photographs of struggling migrant farm workers during the Great Depression (her trademark photograph is "Migrant Mother," Nipomo, California, 1936), Lange also concentrates on the people in this work, with the rural countryside as background. Throughout, the reader gets a sense of the lifestyle, concerns, and humanity of her subjects. The essays are informative and put the photographs in the context of today's Ireland-not so very different from what Lange captured some 30 years ago. This beautiful book is recommended for all travel and photography collections.-Janine A. Reid, Jefferson Cty. P.L., Lakewood, Col.

In 1954, the world-renowned documentary photographer took her cameras to Ireland to record everyday scenes of the faces and places of Ireland--thatching and hay gathering, crowds in the churches and the markets, individuals at work and play. Apart from a handful of images published in a single issue of Life magazine, the 2,400 photographs she took in Ireland have languished in museum archives. One hundred images are presented here from the collection of The Oakland Museum of California, with text by Gerry Mullins and an essay by her son and collaborator, Daniel Dixon. 10x10" Annotation c.
