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

Synopsis:

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."
