Dorothea Lange's Three Mormon Towns

Dorothea Lange, “Leaving Church, Toquerville, Utah 1953,” gelatin silver print. J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, California. ©Dorothea Lange Collection, Oakland Museum of California, City of Oakland. Gift of Paul S. Taylor.

Dorothea Lange’s Three Mormon Towns featured 21 of Lange’s photographs acquired by the museum. The exhibition also drew from collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Columbia College Chicago, and the collection of John and Lolita Dixon. The 62 vintage prints in the exhibition, accompanied by excerpts from Dixon’s original text, examine Lange’s lasting interest in the people of southern Utah and their relationship with the land, their heritage and the transformation of the West in post- war America.
