Margaret Bourke-White (June 14, 1904 – August 27, 1971) was an American photographer and documentary photographer. She is best known as the first foreign photographer permitted to take pictures of Soviet industry, the first female war correspondent (and the first woman permitted to work in combat zones) and the first female photographer for Henry Luce's Life magazine, where her photograph appeared on the first cover. She died of Parkinson's disease about eighteen years after she developed her first symptoms.

Russian photographer Alexey Titarenko sees city crowds as a stream of hands, heads and coats rushing along stairs and streets, in and out of buildings...rushing like water...

Spooky (amazing) photography from Alexey Titarenko - check out the entire gallery called "City of Shadows (1992-1994)"

City of Shadows (1992 - 1994) - Alexey Titarenko. Note to self - Longevity of an action, a movement, how the space is used, reflection on permanency of life and objects. Time and an expression of how we experience a space.

In the 90's, Russian photographer Alexey Titarenko took these pictures of places of passage long exposures with people who create these ghosts from the image.

[ City of Shadows | Alexey Titarenko ]

Photography inspiration

Russian photographer Alexey Titarenko beautifully masters the use of long exposure. His images show ghostly clouds of Russian people, at a time “where people live in a world of unrealized hopes and where time seems to have stopped”. Images here show his work from “City of Shadows” (1992-1994) and “Black and White Magic of St. Petersburg” …

WWII: farewell. photog Alfred Eisenstaedt

A Serviceman Gets a Goodbye Kiss Before Shipping Off to War New York’s Penn Station is the site of this 1942 farewell kiss, a scene reenacted thousands of times in train stations across America during the war.

vintage photos of new york | New York, New York: Nostalgic wartime images romanticize the Big Apple ...

'World War II ~ In this and dozens of other, similar pictures made at New York's Penn Station in 1944, LIFE's Alfred Eisenstaedt captured a private moment repeated in public millions of times over the course of the war: a guy, a girl, a goodbye — and no assurance that he'll make it back. By war's end, more than 400,000 American troops had been killed.'

There is a nearly shocking moment, as you look at this photo, when it hits you that it's not modern (by any stretch of the imagination), it is of (photographer) Albert Sands Southworth and was taken in 1848. A time when the last thing most people (today) would imagine a prim and proper Victorian gentleman doing would be to pose for a topless self-portrait. Simply wonderful!

Natural childbirth is such a gift from God. In the Bible, God gave women birth pains as a result of our sin. It is a reminder of the suffering Jesus accepted on the cross for our sake. It is a way I can suffer with my Savior.

Precious!! THIS, the ability to work hard & overcome it then know you earned it, is what natural birth is about for me :)

I have seen this photo a hundred times it still chokes me up every time. THIS, the ability to work hard overcome it then know you earned it, is what natural birth is about.

In the exhibition The Eyes of War by photographer Martin Roemers, the Kunsthal Rotterdam illustrates the consequences and aftermath of war. For this remarkable series of portraits, Roemers photographed 40 blind war veterans from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, England, Russia and Ukraine. On 4 May, the Netherlands commemorates all Dutch people who have died as a result of war since the Second World War. Roemers portrays not only Dutch war victims, but also those from other countries.
