About this Item

Neuware - This is the most comprehensive book ever published about Margaret Bourke-White, a forerunner in the newly emerging field of photojournalism, and was the first female to be hired as such. She was the first photographer for Fortune magazine, in 1929. In 1930, she was the first Western photographer allowed into the Soviet Union. Henry Luce hired her as the first female photojournalist for Life magazine, soon after its creation in 1935, and one of her photographs adorned its first cover (November 23, 1936). She was also the first female war correspondent and the first to be allowed to work in combat zones during World War II, and one of the first photographers to enter and document the death camps. She made history with the publication of her haunting photos of the Depression in the book You Have Seen Their Faces, a collaboration with husband-to-be Erskine Caldwell. She wrote six books about her international travels. She was the premiere female industrial photographer, getting her start in Cleveland, Ohio, at the Otis Steel Company around 1927. 191 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9788415303961

About this title

Reseña del editor:

Première femme américaine correspondante de guerre, Margaret Bourke-White avait aussi quelque chose d'une star des médias avec son portrait en tenue de vol, sur le point de déclencher son appareil photo lors d'un bombardement aérien, une des pin-up préférée des forces américaines. En se concentrant sur le travail de M. Bourke-White des années 1930 et 40 en Tchécoslovaquie, Allemagne, Italie, Union soviétique et le Royaume-Uni, Moments in History présente 150 photographies classiques accompagnées de correspondances et de publications, M. Bourke-White voulait être les "yeux de l'époque", et ses photos témoignent (comme elle le disait) de son "désir insatiable d'être présente quand l'Histoire est en train de s'écrire".
