    That being the case, here are several images of early works by Dorothea Lange, signed and dated 1921. Images of these prints are surely not available elsewhere, so enjoy them while you can. The originals were found locally in Sept. 2009.

    I had no idea about those LOC collections, some of them are amazing. I just got completely drawn in to the huge collection of Edward Curtis. Wow. Thanks!

    Farm Security Administration documentary photography was paid for by the US taxpayers. The photographers and support personnel were employed by the US government, and thus also paid by taxpayers. That arrangement places their for-hire works into the public domain, and thus available to the public who paid for them via the Library of Congress.

    But there are limits. I can download a high-resolution digital reproduction file and print my own copy. But if I were to ask the LOC to borrow the original negative for a weekend to print my own copy... ?

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."
