Timeless Photographs of Dorothea Lange - JPR

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

Jefferson Public Radio takes a look into Dorothea Lange's expansive work in and around the border of Northern California and Oregon. 

"Even those well-versed in Dorothea Lange's photography usually aren't aware that Lange took over 800 documented photographs in JPR's listening area.

The neglect of these Northwest photographs is a pity,” writes Linda Gordon, Ph.D., in a 2009 article published in Oregon Historical Quarterly. Though Gordon—a professor of History at New York University who considers Portland, Oregon her hometown and author of the comprehensive biography Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits—refers to Lange’s Oregon photos as “second best” and argues that they “do not match the stunning achievement of her Depression best"

9: He/She/They at ROSEGALLERY

In 2015, “they” was nominated word of the year by the American Dialect Society, an indication, at least on the level of language, that American culture is making some moves away from the gender binary. The exhibition He/She/They took that shift to heart, organizing works dating from the early 1930s to the present from around the globe, with a focus on portraiture in the ever-changing medium of photography. The works either directly discussed the constructs of gender or dismantled them altogether. Katsumi Watanabe’s late ’60s portraits captured candid shots of people from Tokyo’s queer nightlife. Susan Meiselas documented carnival strippers during the early ’70s, at the same time the feminist movement was taking shape in the US. In his series Orchard Beach: The Bronx Riviera, Wayne Lawrence documented beachgoers at the Bronx’s only public beach. He/She/They brought a much-needed, refreshing look at gender. —Alicia Eler

"The exhibition presents a selection of photographs, paintings and prints that represent the encompassing sense of idiosyncrasies and connections in American society, underscoring the photography’s unique power in democracy, serving as the visual document of realities within. Continuing from the gallery’s previous show ‘He, She, They’, which explored through the multifaceted ways gender, sexuality, and identities are built in a society, this exhibition emphasizes on the diversity and differences in American demography, through the aspects of race, geography, and economy. Through photographs by artists like Dorothea Lange, Charles Brittin, Diane Arbus and others, the exhibition demonstrates the way people share their spaces before reconfiguring them, and through collected involvement in one place, ‘We’ collectively identify ourselves through a spatial unity."
