13414. The Social Documentary Photography of Dorothea Lange.
Emphasizes the extent to which Lange's pictures of Depression victims can be said to be true to reality. Argues that although her work was powerful and effective, it was for the most part not true to reality (except in an artistic sense) because it was iconographic and was designed to serve a propagandistic purpose. 13 pages, 40 footnotes, 7 bibliographic sources.
