1) Dorothea Margaretta Nutzhorn (May 26, 1895 – October 11, 1965)

2) Dorothea Lange's style of photography was documentary.
3) Dorothea Lange would take dramatic angles and dynamic compositions of her subject to make the photo look stunning.
4) With the Great Depression her pictures of the poor and homeless captured the attention of local photographers and led to her employment with the federal Resettlement Administration.
5) Dorothea used a Graflex camera with a film size of 4" X 5".
6) Dorothea Lange used strictly sunlight in many of her photos.
7 )Dorothea was educated in photography at Columbia University in New York City, in a class taught by Clarence H. White.
8) In 1941 Dorothea was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for achievement in photography. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, she gave up the award to record the forced evacuation of Japanese Americans from the West Coast.
9 )I enjoy how much Dorothea cared for her subjects and didn't care about the money or fame that came with her amazing photographs. Dorothea cared deeply about showing people's struggles with poverty and with the evacuation of Pearl Harbor.
