Jessica Lange has always had a connection to photography.  In 1967, she was awarded a scholarship to study photography at the University of Minnesota. But feeling unsettled, she left for Paris in the middle of her first semester of her education. In France, Lange found herself surrounded by artists and photographers, among them Robert Frank and Danny Lyon. At the time, she self-consciously felt that she didn’t have the same drive or passion for the medium as her peers.  She only reconnected with her passion in the early 1990’s when she received a Leica camera as a gift, from then-partner Sam Shepard.  She has been shooting pictures ever since.
