Dorothea Lange, digitized: Hundreds of rare photographs taken by American photographer Dorothea Lange, whose exploration of the hardships of American life during the Great Depression earned her international renown, are now on display in an Oakland Museum of California virtual exhibit. As SFist reports, the “Dorothea Lange Digital Archive” is the first digital curation of Lange’s work and comprises more than 600 photographs from Lange’s personal archives, which she gifted to the museum after her death in 1965. The collection also includes seldom seen photographs from her early and personal work.
