BYU features photographer Dorothea Lange's 'Three Mormon Towns'

In the summer of 1953, American photographer Dorothea Lange traveled to southern Utah where she met up with her long-time friend, Ansel Adams. The two photographers spent three weeks photographing the landscape and people in the Mormon towns of Toquerville, Gunlock and St. George with the intention of publishing the work in LIFE magazine.

Ms. Lange's enthusiasm for her subject yielded hundreds of photographs from which she composed an extended essay of 135 photographs, including images by Ansel Adams. Thirty-five of those photographs with text by Daniel Dixon appeared under the title "Three Mormon Towns" in the Sept. 6, 1954, issue of LIFE.
