Lasting Photography


I first discovered Dorothea Lange, a Depression-era photographer, when I was in my teens. As a young photographer myself, I found her work very powerful, and it has always stayed with me. All these years later, her work is still as moving now as it was then. Recently I found this photograph which was offered as "copyright free" and have used it on this quiltie.

  1. That's fabulous! I love Dorothea Lange's work - have two books of her photography and wish I could afford to have my walls lined with her photographs. (And thank you for your lovely comments earlier; much appreciated). xo
