About the author (2001)

David Campbell and Mark Durden are artists who have worked collaboratively under the name Common Culture since 1996. They have achieved international recognition for their spectacular displays of fast food light box menus--exhibiting in New York, Manchester, Athens, and most recently, at the Tate Liverpool.

Dorothea Lange was born in New Jersey in 1895. She worked as a professional photographer in San Francisco for fifteen years until the early 1930's, when she took her camera out of her studio and into the street, radically changing the nature of her work. When American Exodus was published she was on the photography staff of the Farm Security Administration.
