Dorothea Lange: A Visual Life
Join us for an afternoon, seeing the work of Dorothea Lange, brought to life through a film made by her goddaughter, Meg Partridge.
Meg grew up around photographers -- Imogen Cunningham, Rondal Partridge and Dorothea Lange. She remembers a seemingly endless stream of visits to Dorothea's house -- seeing her workroom/living room full of ever-changing photographs temporarily tacked to the wall, and always admiring Dorothea's beauty in the placement and reverence of simple, functional objects.
The film brings to life five decades of American history, as Dorothea Lange shares her photographs and her insights, revealing her photographic passion and her commitment to record the rapidly changing face of 20th century America.
Film length: 46 minutes. Ticket Info: Member or with paid museum admission $9 | General $12
Along with the film and talk, walk down the hall to see the exhibition at the Bowers Museum of Dorothea's friend and colleague, Imogen Cunningham. Closing February 26th, this exhibition includes rarely seen works as well as well known icons of Imogen's long 75 year career in photography.
Join Meg after the talk to walk through the show and discuss Imogen's work with you.
