This title presents a magnificent overview of the ground-breaking work of Margaret Bourke-White, one of the world's finest photographers. Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971) is considered one of the first female photojournalists in the history of photography. She was a woman ahead of her time who wanted to break the mould and she achieved objectives that were very difficult for most women and offered the strongest resistance. Bourke-White was the first female photographer on the staff of both Fortune and Life magazines; the first Western photographer allowed to photograph the Soviet Union in 1930 - including both its industries and its people; the first woman photographer to work for the United States Air Force; and the only foreign photographer - male or female - in Moscow when the German bombs began to fall on the city on 19 July. This magnificently illustrated volume offers a fascinating insight into the work of this unique photographer and her "insatiable desire to be on the scene when history was being made."
