“Giving credit to females in a male dominated world. I can think of nothing more worthy of an exhibition. ‘War Photographer’ rarely, if ever, conjures up images of girlfriends out there putting their lives on the line to get the story out, and working with a whole different set of prejudices while in the field” Susan Seubert, Portland Oregon
“Stunning and Powerful, thank you” Jenny
