Gandhi at his spinning wheel

I just happened on this famous Margaret Bourke-White’s picture of Mahatma Gandhi at the spinning wheel. This is quite a famous picture widely known in the world. I love the picture for the exquisite play of light and the delicious symmetry the spinning wheel forms with the semi-lit figure of Gandhi . It is as though the spinning wheel was an integral part of his physiognomy !

  2. Hi! I’m working on an educational project and I”m interested in including this photo in one of the books. Do you know how can I contact the person or agency in charge of the copyrights?
