Margaret Bourke-White photographed everyone, from Stalin to Gandhi…
Sept. 8, 1941 — Margaret Bourke White, “the first American girl to drive into the Kremlin,” takes photos of Joseph Stalin and describes the experience: 
“At  last I was sent for. I had no time to be nervous… Stalin is a different looking man from what I had expected. His pictures make him look tall, but he is short. His pictures make his face look plump, but it is rather lean. He looks like a man who has been stout and gotten thinner lately.  He has a kind of gray and tired look… His mustache and hair have a kind of chewed up, straw-like look. He wears boots and plain khaki clothes. His hands are wrinkled.  He looks like a completely strong person, immobile and unemotional.” 
He laughed when she dropped to her knees to get this shot…
