Fortune’s Greatest Photo Archives

Apr 30, 2007

Fortune invented magazine photojournalism—and we did it with the best, hiring luminaries like Ansel Adams and Walker Evans. In 1930 we sent Margaret Bourke-White to the Soviet Union; the result was the first photo essay. This is a tradition we value. So do others: Images taken for Fortune are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. But it is also a tradition we seek to build on—a labor of love that is anything but black and white. The photos featured here represent some of the best examples of that tradition.
