Behind Margaret Bourke-White’s Classic Image

01 1239 bw 917Life is doing a series of stories that look behind some of their iconic images and even I am learning some new, neat things.

They have the story behind one of Margaret Bourke-White’s iconic images that is often thought to be about the great depression but was actually shot as part of a story about a flood in 1937.

There’s also a gallery of some of the other images from that shoot, several of which I’d never seen before.

Very cool stuff.
