Blogging from A to Z Challenge: B is for…Margaret Bourke-White (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2020 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Margaret Bourke-White was, like Diane Arbus, an American photographer.  She also died in 1971 (born in 1904), but of Parkinson’s disease.

Bourke-White was best known “as the first female war correspondent and the first foreign photographer permitted to document Soviet industry, she captured countless iconic images of 20th-century life, conflict, and the politicians at its center.” (http://www.artnet.com/artists/margaret-bourke-white/)  She photographed during both World War II and the Korean War.  I’m happy to be able to include this photo of her, as it is in the public domain.

I think Bourke-White’s documentary and photojournalism photography is stunning, and she was a trail-blazer for women in these fields, as well as in war photojournalism.  She captured the times, photographing  people in action, landscapes, and city-scapes.  I had high aspirations of trying my hand as some of the styles of the photographers I am covering for this challenge, but I just don’t know that I have it in me, at least not right now given my situation.  So, I am not going to beat myself up for that, and simply make sure I give you some new artists and artistry to explore online!

  1. What an inspirational post. I know how you feel about photography. It is something I wanted to do as well but don’t know if I can for various reasons. I find that if it is something you are passionate about then that is reason enough to go ahead. Talent shouldn’t matter. If it makes you happy and doesn’t harm anyone or yourself do it! Do what makes you happy especially in these trying times.
