Toronto. This past Wednesday we held our monthly Toronto meeting. Before Lorne Shields gave his fabulous 3D presentation on the Velocipede, Ted Catton advised the attendees that TVO had a Dorothea Lange documentary scheduled. I made a mental note and promptly forgot about it until I was reminded today by another member, George Dunbar.
Shortly after I moved to Toronto again in the late 1970s, I discovered the big glossy coffee table books featuring photographs of the 1930s by various American photographers at the Etobicoke reference library, Richview. One of those books was devoted to Dorothea Lange and her stunning imagery.
Her daughter put together this fine documentary on Ms Lange’s work. Take a look.
