As a child, Dorothea Lange had polio which left her walking with a limp. This made her feel self-conscious and she just wanted to disappear into the shadows. She became very skilled at staying in the background and watching others around her. Itís no surprise that these skills were helpful as she fulfilled her dream to become a professional photographer and stay behind the lens. She focused her camera and energy on documenting the hardships of the Great Depression at a time when many Americans didnít understand their plight. This biography puts Dorothea in the spotlight as the talented artist she was and the groundwork she laid for documentary style photography. With a photo gallery, timeline, and bibliography, this read-aloud format invites readers into the life of an extraordinary woman. (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Award 2017-2018)
