Margaret Bourke-White

Tomorrow for art class we are studying Margaret Bourke-White. If you do not know her story, you might want to watch the short video below, and there is tons of information available on her in the search engines. She was a famous female photographer. If time permits at the end of the day, both children get to play educational computer games. This is ongoing but I don't always say it.

The "Mother" slide is a photograph of a migrant mother during the 30s depression and dust bowl. This photography is by the famous photographer Dorthea Lange, not Margaret Bourke White. Thanks.
