"I see something special and show it to the camera.
The moment is held until someone sees it.
Then it is theirs."
- Sam Abell
This quote from published National Geographic photographer, Sam Abell, profoundly describes the body of work that was produced by Dorothea Lange. Her work during the 20th century shaped the way America vied itself. She captured what she saw with a powerful angst and gave it to the world as an honest truth.
While this was a film I (at first) unwillingly had to watch in my Art History course, it turned into a beautifully formed work that touched my heart.
