Margaret Bourke-White

Despite the magnificent accomplishhments of Margaret Bourke-White,
the italicized Art Daily text surrounding the image is the most
under-stated description of an A.D. photograph I have ever seen.

The words below the image duplicate the first paragraph of Margaret's Wikipedia page

No text is necessary to interpret the words within this profound 1937 photograph
vis-a-vis the people standing in line and the family in the car.

On a day like today,
American photographer and journalist Margaret Bourke-White was born

Margaret Bourke-White (June 14, 1904 – August 27, 1971)
was an American documentary photographer.

She was the first foreign photographer permitted to take pictures
of Soviet industry...and the first woman permitted to work in combat zones.

She was the first female photographer for Henry Luce's Life magazine,
where her photograph appeared on the first cover

In this image: Kentucky Flood by Margaret Bourke-White.
