Dorothea Lange: "Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."

Dorothea Lange in 1936

Dorothea Lange


Pick a theme and work it to exhaustion... the subject must be something you truly love or truly hate. 
Dorothea Lange


While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.
