  1. A Picture is Worth a Thousand..Feelings: Dorothea Lange and her Photographs By: Lauren Pavao

  2. FSA • Resettlement Act created 1935. • Take photos of what population was enduring during Depression. • Dorothea Lange hired 1935, soon after RA began. • Name change to Farm Security Administration (FSA).

  3. Dorothea Lange • Took a more personal approach to her photos; making them personal yet prideful. • Lange: “Documentary photography is less a matter of subject, and more a matter of approach.” • Stryker: “Stark, merciless approach yet her pictures reflected a dignity of spirit that is unique.”

  4. “Migrant Pea Picker on the Road to California” • Though surroundings are desolate and bleak there is still a sense of hope. • Exhibits strength in people.

  5. Personal Theme • Looks of desertion amongst Lange’s photos • Naked fields, deserted houses, human abandonment

  6. Wants in a Photo • Lange stated: 1st- hands; off-do not “tamper with or arrange” the scene. 2nd-get a “sense of place…picture as part of its surroundings.” 3rd-get a “sense of time..having its position in the past or present.”

  7. Honest Photography • Photographed the rural poor. • Southern racial codes. • The Great Depression. • Was told to shoot “men, women, and children who appear as if they really believe in the United States”

  8. Unique Style Example • “On the Road Towards Los Angeles, 1937” • Billboard drew negative attention • Photo catches viewers eye

  9. Comparison

  10. Infamous photo: Migrant mother

  11. In conclusion • She conveyed a mood not a particular circumstance or activity. • Known to have the “most sensitivity and rapport with the people.”-Stryker • Evoked thousands of feelings unlike thousands of words.
