Summary
"In 1918, a fearless twenty-two-year-old arrives in bohemian San Francisco from the Northeast, determined to make her own way as an independent woman. Renaming herself Dorothea Lange, she is soon the celebrated owner of the city?s most prestigious and stylish portrait studio and wife of the talented but volatile painter, Maynard Dixon. By the early 1930s, as America?s economy collapses, her marriage founders and Dorothea must find ways to support her two young sons single-handedly. Determined to expose the horrific conditions of the nation?s poor, she takes to the road with her camera, creating images that inspire, reform, and define the era. And when the United States enters World War II, Dorothea chooses to confront another injustice?the incarceration of thousands of innocent Japanese Americans. Learning to see is a gripping account of the ambitious woman behind the camera who risked everything for art, activism, and love. But her choices came at a steep price?"--Back cover
