Meet the Authors
In 1918, twenty-two-year-old Dorothea Nutzhorn arrives in bohemian San Francisco determined to forge her way on her own terms. Within a year and a half, she’s renamed herself Dorothea Lange and is the toast of the Bay Area as the owner of the city’s most prestigious and stylish portrait studio and wife of the talented painter, Maynard Dixon.
Set amidst the turmoil of the Great Depression and the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, LEARNING TO SEE follows the life of an ambitious woman and her awakening to art, activism, and what it means to risk everything for love.
