Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning

Recording the life and career of perhaps our finest documentary photographer, the latest entry in PBS’ American Masters series is a fascinating documentary. In it, we see Lange develop from a portrait artist to someone on the road photographing the bread lines during the Great Depression, laborers during the Dust Bowl, sharecroppers in the South East, and interned Japanese citizens after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

The film also discusses her personal life and marriage to Paul Taylor, who hired her for the Farm Security Administration, where she took arguable the most famous photograph in American history, Migrant Mother.

Interspersed with interviews with Lange, Grab a Hunk of Lightning is a must-see for anyone interested in photography and American history.
