Dorothea Lange: Photography as Activism

Dorothea Lange: Photography as Activism

  • 1000 Oak St., Oakland, CA 94607
  • Neighborhood: Chinatown

About

Experience the iconic life and work of Dorothea Lange, a world-renowned documentary photographer, with an expanded installation in the Gallery of California Art dedicated to her works. Through the lens of her camera, Lange documented American life with riveting photographs that captured some of the most powerful moments of the 20th century. Drawn from Lange's personal archive, which was gifted to OMCA over 50 years ago, and in response to the popular 2017 exhibition Dorothea Lange: The Politics of Seeing, a number of newly added photographs will illustrate the power of photography as social activism. See how Lange's work continues to resonate with millions and inspire new generations of artists and activists.
