Dorothea Lange Documentary Photography Goes on Show in France

PARIS – An exhibition bringing together images taken by United States photojournalist Dorothea Lange over the course of her career was preparing to open its doors to the public on Monday.

The retrospective, entitled “The Politics of Seeing,” would feature works by Lange, known for her images documenting the social impact of the Great Depression (1929-39), that have never before been shown in France, according to the Jeu de Paume museum in Paris, which is hosting the exhibit.

“The exhibition focuses on the extraordinary emotional power of Dorothea Lange’s work and on the context of her documentary practice,” the museum said on its site.

The show covers five series: the Depression (1933-34), the Farm Security Administration (1935-39), Japanese American internment during World War II (1942), the Richmond shipyards in California (1942-44) and a public defender (1955-57).

Most of Lange’s works belong to California’s Oakland Museum, to which her prints were donated by her husband following her death in 1965.

“This exhibition encourages the public to rediscover the importance of Dorothea Lange’s work as a landmark in the history of documentary photography,” the museum said.

The show runs from Oct. 16-Jan. 27.
