Daring to Look, Paperback (September 2009)
When Lange was dismissed from the Farm Security Administration in 1939, her photos and field notes were consigned to archives. This work presents photos and captions from Dorothea Lange's fieldwork in California, the Pacific Northwest, and North Carolina. It sets them in the context of Lange's life, work, and struggle for critical recognition.
Language of Landscape, Paperback (August 2000)» View all books by Anne Whiston Spirn
This study suggests that the language of landscape exists with its own syntax, grammar, and metaphors, and that we imperil ourselves by failing to learn and speak this language. Spirn examines urban, rural and natural landscapes, and discusses the thought of renowned landscape authors.
