Summary
"Nbar the end of her career, Dorothea Lange lamented, "No country has ever closely scrutinized itself visually ... I know what we could make of it if people only thought we could dare look at ourselves." Lange, however, did look, unflinchingly turning her lens on the despair, degradation, and greed unleashed by the Great Depression, and her photographs for the New Deal's Farm Security Administration have become defining images of that time, capturing a country and a people on the brink of cataclysmic change." "Daring to Look presents never-before-published photos and captions from Lange's fieldwork in California, North Carolina, and the Pacific Northwest during 1939. Lange's images of squatter camps, beleaguered farmers, and stark landscapes are stunning, and her captions - which range from simple explanations of settings to historical notes and biographical sketches - add unexpected depth, bringing her subjects and their struggles unforgettably to life, often in their own words."--BOOK JACKET
