Dorothea Lange Digital Archive

Dorothea Lange (1895–1965) is recognized as one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. She documented American life with riveting, intimate photographs that captured the human face of national events. Best known for iconic images of migrant farmworkers during the Depression of the 1930s, her many other projects include photographs of urban homelessness and Japanese American citizens incarcerated during World War II. Later work addressed community displacement, the urban criminal justice system, and rural life in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Explore OMCA's new Dorothea Lange Digital Archive at museumca.org/lange.
