Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning Film Screening

October 1, 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Lecture Hall


While Dorothea Lange’s haunting image The Migrant Mother is one of the most recognized photographs in the world, few know the story, struggles, and profound body of work of the woman behind the camera.  Award winning cinematographer Dyanna Taylor, Lange’s granddaughter, directs and narrates this intimate documentary as it explores Lange’s life, probes the nature of her muses—two great men and the camera itself—and her uncompromising vision.  

Join us for a screening of this documentary film followed by a virtual discussion with Dyanna Taylor.
