Margaret Bourke-White: Daring Photographer
The pioneering Margaret Bourke-White took photography to new heights with her daring shots of skyscrapers and other new architectural wonders. Pursuing the perfect photo, she dangled from airplanes, was lost in the frozen wilderness of Antarctica, and risked death in combat zones as the first female war correspondent. With courage and compassion, Bourke-White snapped some of the most important photographs of the twentieth century. In this riveting narrative, Sara McIntosh Wooten captures the thrills and the challenges that shaped the life of the world's foremost woman photojournalist.
