Dorthea Lange

Posted November 12th, 2009 by Anthony

“In 1957 when her students at California Institute of Art asked [Dorthea] Lange for a picture to fit the title, “Where I Live,” she submitted one of of her twisted right foot.” San Francisco Chronicle, 11-8-09 in a review of Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits by Linda Gordon.

More and more these days it’s OK to talk or write about disability & disability identity. I was struck not only by the excerpt from the book but also that the reviewer, David D’Arcy, mentions it in his review.
