Grade 4-6-An excellent introduction to the life and work of this documentary photographer. Thoughtful and poignant, harsh and realistic, Lange's photographs are not only the masterpieces of her professional career, but also reflections of the artist herself. Turner recounts that this woman, who captured unforgettable images of the human condition during the Great Depression, faced many personal difficulties, including being stricken with polio at age 7 and deserted by her father at 12. But, from the moment she decided to become a photographer after high school, her dedication to her art never waivered. Her genius for capturing people in unposed moments is evident in the examples of some of her most famous black-and-white photos that appear throughout the book. The quality of the reproductions is excellent, and it is obvious that great care was taken to select examples that would show her talent for translating a wide range of troubling social issues into indelible images. The text also gives an authentic sense of the 1920s and '30s. A fine addition.
