On the unique synthesis of word and image in Dorothea Lange's boldly political photography, which defined the iconography of WPA and Depression-era America.

Presenting Lange’s work in its diverse contexts―photobooks, Depression-era government reports, newspapers, magazines, poems―along with the voices of contemporary artists, writers and thinkers, the book offers a nuanced understanding of Lange’s career, and new means for considering words and pictures today. An introductory essay by curator Sarah Hermanson Meister is followed by sections organized according to “words” from a range of historical contexts: Lange’s landmark photobook An American ExodusLife and Aperture magazines, an illustrated guide to minimize racism in jury trials, and many more.
