    How very sad.
    Her style of photojournalism was to be admired. Totally unlike the CNN crowd who "Become" news. Ms.Leroy reminded me of the type of work done by the late Ernie Pyle.
    Always present without becoming a presence.

    That horrible disease takes too many and too soon.

    Sad indeed - thanks for posting, Suzanne.

    Thanks for posting this, Suzanne. Catherine Leroy's work was (and still is, of course) excellent.

    NYT article about Leroy. Amazing photos:

    Odd there was a New York Times story online. Now it is gone without a trace!

    The links appear to be dead so it's failing to our ad system, will see if I can re-find valid ones and edit the post

    somewhat fixed but you may need to google for more info

    Thank You, Suzanne. When the events aren't as current, their memory fades. 'looked up her work. 'Gritty as Eric says. Maybe the reminder is a good thing.
