Margaret Bourke-White: “The Eyes on Russia” Photographs
Date(s) - 03/21/2017
In 1930, Bourke-White, the famous photojournalist who grew up in Bound Brook, NJ, became the first foreign photographer after the Russian Revolution to photograph with permission of the Soviet government. This slide lecture traces her transformation from an industrial photographer to an artist with a social conscience, whose left-wing associations in the 1930s came back to haunt her during the McCarthy era.
