Margaret Bourke White The Photography of Design 1927 1936Xhibition held at the Phillips Collection in Washington DC in 2003 and traveling to other US museu. Bourke White was very tough and independent and way ahead of her time The book tracks her early commission industrial career starting in Cleveland specifically it's steel mils leading to her move to New York where she became editorial working for Fortune and Life she'd have the first cover It also shows her shift from the inanimate objects or people that might well have been to a candid style which was not very easy with the euipment available at the timeIt takes guts to self assign on speculation the topic or Russia when no foreigners were supposed to enter to run a lavish studio in the Chrysler Building during the Great Depression and run up 5000 in debt and to travel into the great dust storms of the thirtiesShe worked hard all her life and found herself in numerous historical moments including Moscow being invaded by the Germans no other foreign correspondents were there the liberating of Buchenwald and taking Ghandi's famous portrait next to the spinning wheel hours before he was assassinatedI found the back section with correspondences between her her lawyer editors at Life and Fortune etc very interesting Many times her photos were not good for purposes but she kept plugging away There were significant suabbles of photo rights and legal things Through it all she kept her priority photography The gear's changed tremendously in the last 80 years but it seems to me what it takes to be a photographer is still very similar
