Dorothea Lange :Politics of Seeing at The Barbican. My first time there as a member, I finally bought myself a membership after paying full price to see the Basquait exhibition - worth every penny but it s an expensive hobby!
I love Dorothea Lange s work, she was a very early social documentary and a very good portrait photographer. She'sfamous for the now iconic photograph "Migrant Mother" but it was cool to see the other 4/5 shots she took of Florence Owen Thompson and her children too. It s a very strong image for sure and it became a symbol for the 1930's Dust Bowl era. I love this photo of the family hitch hiking in Oaklahoma 193, like so many of the people in her photographs, sad but also strong and determined people.
If you are going to see this exhibition you ve gotta find the time to watch the 20min film of Dorothea talking as she organises her last major exhibition the year before she died, what an insightful woman and such a character! 🖤🖤🖤@pixelpaperrock don t worry I m going to take you too 💜

Dad revisiting the first surf spot he ever surfed over 50 years ago on South Australia's Yorke Peninsula. Pity there was no real swell....but just seeing him smile & reminisce was gold ☺️ I've always adored my Dad & it's heartbreaking to see him fighting for his life at the moment.....but I'm soo proud of him for not giving up hope & keeping his sense of humor & that simple joy of living day to day ❤️✨🌊
During the Great Depression, "in rural areas, farmers struggled to survive as produce prices dropped more than 50 percent. Furthermore, a prolonged drought afflicted the Great Plains area of the Midwest, turning the region into a giant Dust Bowl. The situation encouraged agrarian unrest; farmers fought evictions and foreclosures by attacking those who tried to enforce them. Farmers also conspired to keep prices at farm auctions low and then returned the auctioned property to its original owner. In addition, they formed the Farmers' Holiday Association, which organized demonstrations and threatened a nationwide walkout by farmers in order to raise prices." (The Princeton Review)
❓❓❓Which New Deal Act provided payments to farmers in return for their agreement to cut production by up to one-half?
This photo has so many layers 🔲Taken in NE New Mexico, near what was to become the epicenter of the Dust Bowl, my family moved there from Illinois to homestead in 1908. They’re standing amongst fruit trees. Keeping an orchard became a sort of status symbol in pre dustbowl times as proof that you could ‘prove up’ your land, and re-make what was perceived as a desolate place (the prairie) into a hospitable, green, midwestern-like lush agricultural center. Lots of homesteaders like my family even carried seeds sewn into their clothes in little packets to plant out (as misguided as it was to plough under the prairie I love that notion). I imagine the plagues of grasshoppers and jackrabbits later killed off these trees in short order during the dust bowl if they didn’t simply succumb to the dust. The only thing that remains of their settlement is the tops of buried fence posts and the cemetery where they’re buried. In the center is my grandpa’s aunt Helen, who originally grew up on the farm in Southern Illinois but had moved to L.A., at L is her uncle Eddie, and at R her grandfather (my great great great grandfather) Joseph Halterman, a civil war veteran, one of a small subgroup of Mennonites who did not follow the majority of their faith in pacifism. Also, can you spot the chicken? 🐓🍏🌾#dustbowl#newmexico#orchard#family#ancestors#Evans#Halterman#chicken#southwest
But all my wings are made of hay and corn husk, so I can’t leave this world behind.
