Overview

Dorothea's Eyes: Dorothea Lange Photographs the Truth by Barb Rosenstock, Gerard Dubois

After a childhood bout of polio left her with a limp, all Dorothea Lange wanted to do was disappear. But this desire not to be seen helped her learn how to blend into the background and observe others acutely. With a passion for the artistic life, and in spite of her family's disapproval, Dorothea pursued her dream to become a photographer and focused her lens on the previously unseen victims of the Great Depression. This poetic biography tells the emotional story of Lange's evolution as one of the founders of documentary photography. It includes a gallery of Lange's photographs, and an author's note, timeline, and bibliography.

Barb Rosenstock grabs us with her first lines and proceeds to reveal Dorothea’s emotional core with rich, powerful language. The imagery of her eyes carries readers through the story, bringing us to understand how she sees with her heart. So much history invites exploration – polio, the Great Depression, photography, unemployment, breadlines. The illustrations appear to have the texture of aged photographs. Every aspect of the story is well crafted, a supreme example of nonfiction with heart.
