Dorothea Lange Magnet Set A set of six magnets reproducing Dorothea Lange's stark images of the 1942 Japanese American Evacuation.

Documentary photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) is best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration. Three months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, she was hired by the War Relocation Authority to photograph the removal of Japanese Americans from their West Coast homes and communities.

Because of her reputation as a social activist with liberal political leanings, Lange’s photographs were closely scrutinized by military authorities. Few of the hundreds of images she took were published during the war and many were impounded as they were considered too sympathetic to the plight of Japanese Americans. While these magnets depict just a few of Dorothea Lange’s 1942 photographs, they illustrate her compassion and dedication to preserving history.
