As photographers, we live through things so swiftly. All our experience and training is focused toward snatching off the highlights...That all significant perfect moment, so essential to capture, is often highly perishable. There may be little opportunity to probe deeper. -"Portrait of Myself" by Margaret Bourke-White
We are in a privileged and sometimes happy position. We see a great deal of the world. Our obligation is to pass it on to others. -Margaret Bourke White, on war and photojournalism.
The very secret of life for me...was to maintain in the midst of rushing events an inner tranquillity. I had picked a life that dealt with excitement, tragedy, mass calamities, human triumphs and suffering. To throw my whole self into recording and attempting to understand these things, I needed an inner serenity as a kind of balance. -"Portrait of Myself" by Margaret Bourke-White
They [her subjects] believed I would be trying to get the truth of the question, and they trusted me. -Margaret Bourke White
