Andrew Stansbury submits Margaret Bourke-White

There's something remarkable (badass) in Margaret Bourke-White's sepia-tinged work that is fascinating. The way she documented the flapper-era of Modernism, looking past the glitz and towards the architecture and the working man, brought out of strengths as a photographer. She had the capability of capturing mammoth size, texture and design of buildings, bridges and factories, but she also was able to capture the human moments surrounding these forms because at heart she was a photojournalist.
