This is a stunning volume Partridge's text really performs the task of letting Lange speak of her own life and work It feels like a good balance between life story and art story The photos are presented well and the captions something Lange herself was attentive too refine the photo placing it into its vital context The humanity of her work never ceases to come through and Lange is anything but a dispassionate eye of loss and hardship and the casual brutality of economics and politics Lange's own observations about photography and her subjects are well documented here and enrich our understanding of her art and the context of its creation This is a terrific survey of a seminal American photographer whose works resonate as much today as they did when they were taken
