Supplemental Walking Tour for Women Behind the Lens: Female Photographers in Memoir, Biography, and Documentary Film
The first major MoMA exhibition of Lange’s work in 50 years, Words & Pictures (February 9, 2020 through May 9, 2020) brings iconic and lesser known works from the collection together, from early street photography to projects on criminal justice reform.  Her landmark 1939 photobook An American Exodus,  a central focus of the show, combines words and pictures to convey the human impact of Dust Bowl migration.  Conceived in collaboration with her husband, agricultural economist Paul Taylor, the book weaves together field notes, folk song lyrics, newspaper excerpts, and observations from contemporary sociologists.
