Description

A photograph of Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971), taken by JCA Redhead (1886-1954) during World War Two. Margaret Bourke-White was a pioneering female photographer and photojournalist. Here she is wearing United States Army Airforce uniform. Bourke-White was the first female war correspondent and the first to be allowed to work in combat zones during World War Two. She survived the sinking of a ship, flew on American bombing raids and was one of the first photographers to enter and document the Nazi death camps. Kodachrome, regarded as the first 'modern' colour proces, was announced by Kodak in 1935. Kodachrome film was imported from the USA and was in very short supply during World War Two. As Head of Kodak Ltd's Photo Finishing Laboratory in Harrow, England, Redhead had acces to supplies of this scarce colour film.
