Bourke-White's romantic admiration of functional architecture can be seen in her later pictures for Fortune and Life magazines. Bourke-White wrote: "To me . . . Industrial forms were all the more beautiful because they were never designed to be beautiful. They had a simplicity of line that came from their direct application of purpose. Industry . . . Had evolved an unconscious beauty often a hidden beauty that was waiting to be discovered."
 
Margaret Bourke-White, Portrait of Myself (New York: Simon and Schuster, 1963), 49.
