Defined by a series of “firsts” – the first western photographer inside the Soviet Union, the first female war correspondent, the first female photojournalist for LIFE magazine -- Margaret Bourke-White began her career by revolutionizing black and white photography lighting at the Otis Steel Company in Cleveland, Ohio. Her work features iconic and much-beloved portraits of Mahatma Ghandi, as well as a vast library of Depression-era photography. Having been among the first photographers to enter and document the death camps of World War II, her signature style is unabashedly honest and hauntingly beautiful. See more by Margaret Bourke-White.
