    Yes that is very interesting, especially the slide show.

    One of the pictures really is different not because it shows her and a soldier at the front line, but their footwear.

    Did you notice their footwear?

    It looks like they are wearing a slip on type of very light shoe. I wonder if this is because of heat because of summer, or if they just didn't have decent footwear and these were made up on the spot.

    I wonder if there are any people on the forum of Spanish origin or nationality, who could possibly shed some light on this?

    Mick.

    Good to be reminded of a virtually forgotten photographer.

    Another photographer in the same vein (female combat photographer, killed in action, almost forgotten today) was Dickey Chapelle.

    I'm attending the Patrons' preview tonight at ICP.
    One must support those gallant Rolleiflex shooters.

    I can't make it tonight, but I'm a Rolleiflex-shooter building the Bank of America high-rise looming over the ICP.
