Sally Stein, Associate Professor of Art History and Visual Studies at University of California, irvine, has focused her research and writing for many decades on the history of photography, particularly the work of documentarians Dorothea Lange, Marion Post Wolcott, Jack Delano, Rondal Partridge and, most recently, John Gutmann.
