First-generation Bourke-White USSR photograph originally featured in Life magazine
Description  

First-generation original glossy 13.25 x 9.25 photo of a camel train carrying supplies through the USSR taken by Bourke-White. Reverse bears a Black Star, Graybar Building, New York, photo agency stamp with “Bourke-White” pencil notation. Though untitled by Bourke-White, reverse is notated with “Camels pulling wagons in front of a church, Russia,” and the image is commonly known as ‘Camels Pulling Loaded Wagons, Driven by Russians Along Muddy Road Past Russian Orthodox Church.’ Some chipping and creasing to edges, otherwise fine condition. Most likely taken when Bourke-White visited Russia in 1941 as Life magazine's war correspondent, this image was published under an article entitled ‘Great Industries Supply the Red Army: Magnitogorsk is an Epic,’ in Life’s March 29, 1943, issue dedicated to the USSR.
