First Photography Museum Joins Google Art Project

By now, we're used to museums partnering with the Google Art Project and sharing selections of their popular or less known collections online. However, this month a photography museum finally got into the mix, with the George Eastman House, the oldest photography museum in the world, offering an initial 50 images from its extensive collections online.

Dorothea Lange. 'Migratory Cotton Picker' Eloy, Arizona 1940. This photograph is significant because it is one of the first for the photographer to “direct” the photograph. The beauty in this is that it reads to the viewer what the artist wanted to say about the subject. In this series, Lange wanted to depict the migrants and workers of America. This image shows a man who uses his hands in labor and he seems rugged.
