| Moving, genuine documentary paints intense image of County Clare life.
A moving and genuine documentary that allows the people of County Clare to tell their own stories, Photos to Send retraces the 1954 travels of Dorothea Lange whose photographs appeared in Life magazine. The filmmaker displays an ability similar to Lange's to win peoples trust and get them to open up for the camera. Interspersed with Lange's own b&w images and interviews with those who knew her, Photos to Send has much to say about Lange and about photography as well as about the people of County Clare then and now. Just occasionally the film lapses into excessive sentimentality, but the overwhelming feeling is of insight into and empathy for the lives of those who feature.
