Dedicated to Margaret Bourke-White, one of the most representative and iconic women in photojournalism, this exhibition shows over 100 images of the American photographer’s unconventional vision and life.

A pioneer of information and image, Margaret Bourke-White has explored every area of photography: From the first images dedicated to the world of industry and corporate projects, to the great reportages for major publications such as Fortune and Life; from the visual chronicles of the Second World War, to the famous portraits of first Stalin and then Gandhi (met during the reportage on the birth of the new India and portrayed shortly before his death); from the South Africa of apartheid, to the America of racial conflicts to the thrill of aerial visions of the American continent.

Over 100 images from the Life archive in New York divided into 11 thematic groups that, in a chronological view, trace the thread of Margaret Bourke-White’s existential path and show her visionary and narrative capacity, capable of composing dense and dazzling photographic “stories.”
