Transcript

  • 1. Margaret Bourke-White Quiet scenes from a revolutionary life
  • 2. In 1946, Mohandas Gandhi sits next to a spinning wheel, a device used to make yarn or thread; the now-famous image came to symbolize the notion of Indian self-sufficiency — and thus independence from British rule.
  • 3. Gandhi often went on hunger strikes as a method of antigovernment resistance. Here in 1948, he's seen ending his last fast, which was intended to persuade Hindus and Muslims to work towards peace. Mere weeks after this picture was taken, a Hindu extremist would assassinate him as he headed to an evening prayer meeting.
  • 4. Gandhi ends his final fast in 1948
  • 5. Before she was allowed to photograph Gandhi, Bourke-White was informed she would need to learn the spinning wheel. (She caught on quickly.) Her nowfamous images of Gandhi working at his wheel, like this one from 1946, became an enduring representation of Gandhi's legacy.
  • 6. In 1946, an array of sandals and shoes lie outside the doorway of the flat occupied by Gandhi's personal secretary
  • 7. Mohandas Gandhi's long-eared goat, 1946

  • 9. Gandhi, center, is shown walking with family members and an official (in suit) from the Friend's Ambulance Unit — an international organization focused on famine relief — in 1946.
  • 10. "Surrounded by his adoring disciples, Gandhi goes walking each morning. Here he is supported by his granddaughter Sita (left) and daughter-in-law Abha (right)."
  • 11. Mohandas K. Gandhi, 1946.
  • 12. Mohandas Gandhi with his secretary, Pyarelal Nayyar, 1946.
  • 13. Mohandas Gandhi stands near his nephew Kanu (right) and his wife Abha, as his secretaries (left to right) Sushila Pai, Raj Kumari and Pyarelal Nayyar sit at his feet during a twilight prayer meeting, 1946.
  • 14. Mohandas Gandhi (third from right) walks with (left to right) his secretary, Pyarelal, Dr. Horace Alexander of the Friend's Ambulance Unit. Also pictured: Abha Gandhi (second from right) and his son Manilal's wife, Sushila.
