And even more Dorothea Lange

I went to another Dorothea Lange event. This one I hadn't even planned on attending. I just went to my branch library to drop off an overdue DVD and saw a flyer announcing the event which would take place that same evening. Nice bit of serendipity!

Dorothea Lange's son Daniel Dixon and his wife Dixie were there, and they narrated a slide show of photographs of and by Lange. The event was being filmed for a documentary about what it was like to grow up the child of two accomplished, larger-than-life parents (Dixon's father was Lange's first husband, the artist Maynard Dixon). Should be an interesting film!
