This is really terrific, John. Such a great look at so many important photos. This does really make me want to look at what images photographers are taking today, and ask if we are recording enough history about today's economic dislocation.


Thanks very much. Lange made a lot of wonderful photos that rarely get seen. I wanted to show a few.

As for contemporary photographers... Lange's got a lot of spiritual descendants. You could look at Mary Ellen Mark. In many ways she's also a photographer who documents through portraits.

Brenda Ann Kenneally is one of my favorites. Check out her latest work, here:


These photos are so beautiful. Thank you so much for putting this together. I have seen that top photo, of course. But this is the first time I've seen more of Lange's work.
