Product Details


“This brief, illustrated biography explores how the life of pioneering photojournalist Dorothea Lange influenced her art…. the mostly autumnal palette complements the text as it teaches … tawny colors work equally well to conjure the Great Depression…. An excellent beginner’s resource for biography, U.S. history, and women’s studies.” — Kirkus Reviews

“This biography of celebrated photographer Dorothea Lange (best known for the iconic Migrant Mother) has a clear, consistent message… Lange’s photographs are unique because they depict ‘people the world ignores’ with both truth and love, allowing viewers to see the world with their eyes and hearts…DuBois employs a muted palette, and the striking illustrations have a faded look that complements the setting and mood….A solid introduction to one of America’s most celebrated photographers.” —School Library Journal

“Rosenstock lyrically describes photographer Dorothea Lange’s creative development from a polio-stricken child from Hoboken to the photographer behind some of the nation’s most iconic images.” —Publishers Weekly

“An oversize portrait of those titular grey-green eyes introduce Dorothea’s special talent at seeing details in objects and faces that others might miss….Softly outlined pastel images create spacious and simple vivid pictures…” —Booklist
