Praise for Close Up on War: The Story of Pioneering Photojournalist Catherine LeRoy in Vietnam
- A riveting biography that puts an overlooked, award-winning female photojournalist into historical context. - Kirkus Reviews
From award-winning journalist and children’s book author Mary Cronk Farrell comes the inspiring and fascinating story of the woman who gave a human face to the Vietnam War. Close Up on War tells the story of French-born Catherine Leroy, one of the war’s few woman photographers, who documented some of the fiercest fighting in the 20-year conflict. Although she had no formal photographic training and had never traveled more than a few hundred miles from Paris before, Leroy left home at age 21 to travel to Vietnam and document the faces of war.
