Lange at Moma

It’s worth taking a look at the essay by Rebecca Solnit published in the Paris Review:

which comes from the book and exhibition catalogue Dorothea Lange: Words & Pictures to accompany the exhibition of that name which was to have opened at MoMA in New York on April 30th. It will now open as an online show on that same date, but it’s already worth going to see the text and short video about the show.

You can also download the well-illustrated press release about the forthcoming show.

One of the few benefits of the current pandemic is that so many exhibitions like this one are now taking place on-line. It’s a bonus for us all. In normal times I would certainly not have gone to New York to see the show, but now I can view it from home. Not quite the same, but there are pluses and minuses in online presentations as opposed to an actual visit. You can certainly see the pictures with fewer distractions.
