Dorothea Lange and Her Impact

High Museum of Art, Hill Auditorium

Film Screening and Panel Discussion, featuring John Dixon (Dorothea Lange’s son), Filmmaker Tom Ropelewski, and Jennifer McFarland. The program featured a “preview” from “Child of Giants,” a documentary by Tom Ropelewski. The film centers on the life and family relationships of Dorothea Lange and her husband, noted painter, Maynard Dixon, as seen through the eyes of their son, Daniel Dixon. The preview included commentary by Daniel and John Dixon. Segments also included observations with photographers Rondal Partridge and Christina Gardner, who worked intimately in the field with Lange. Lumière was pleased to host the event with the High Museum’s Curator of Photography, Julian Cox.
The event was also a collaborative effort with Atlanta Celebrates Photography.

Above is a trailer of the film which was completed and released the following year in 2010.

Celebrating the birthday and work of Thomas Neff. An exceptional photographer and person, Neff is a retired professor from LSU in Baton Rouge.

Highlighting 10 images from a powerful body of work entitled: Holding Out And Hanging On - Surviving Hurricane Katrina.

This work stemmed from his personal experiences and relationships with nearly two hundred people in New Orleans who defied evacuation orders after Hurricane Katrina devastated their city. During this time he photographed and compiled the stories of these resolute people who survived the onslaught of the storm, the flooding of their homes, and the city they hold so dear.

Bert Hardy (1913 - 1995)
Hardy was a British documentary and press photographer. He rose from humble working class origins to work first for the General Photographic Agency, then to found his own freelance firm Criterion. In 1941 Criterion was absorbed into the leading picture publication of the 1930s and 1940s, Picture Post.

Hardy was self-taught and used a Leica - unconventional for press photographers at that time - but went on to become the Post's Chief Photographer. Hardy served as a war photographer in the Royal Army Photographic Unit from 1942 until 1946: he took part in the D-Day landings in June 1944; covered the liberation of Paris; the allied advance across the Rhine; and was one of the first photographers to enter a liberated Nazi concentration camp to record the suffering there. He later went on to cover the Korean War for Picture Post.

After leaving Picture Post Hardy became one of the most successful advertising photographers of the 1960s.

May is National Photography Month - Highlighting today portrait photography. Since the inception of the medium we have pointed the camera at ourselves. A good portrait not only reveals a person's physical attributes but often provides context and deeper insight to the subject.

Shown here - in order of appearance - are portraits by Imogen Cunningham, Thomas Neff, Paul Strand, Pirkle Jones, Alexander Rodchenko and John Gutmann.
