Catherine Leroy        FR        1945-2006

 

(...) photojournalist

whose stark images of battle

helped tell

the story of Vietnam

in Life magazine

and other publications

 

(...)

 

Ms. Leroy,

who was born in France,

was 21 in 1966

when she bought

a one-way ticket to Saigon

to document

American troops

in Vietnam.

 

A year later

she was the only

accredited journalist

to take part

in a combat parachute jump

with the 173rd Airborne Brigade

during Operation Junction City.

 

Her 1967 photograph

“Corpsman in Anguish”

portrays a young Marine,

his face wrenched in torment,

hunched over the body of his friend

while smoke from the battle

rises behind them.

 

In 1968,

during the Tet offensive,

Ms. Leroy was captured

by the North Vietnamese Army.

 

She managed

to talk her way out

and emerged with images

of the army in action

that were published in Life.

 

One was used

on the cover

under the headline:

“A Remarkable Day in Hue:

The enemy

lets me take his picture,

by Catherine Leroy.”

 

Ms. Leroy worked

for the Gamma

and Sipa photo agencies

and later sold her work

to The Associated Press

and United Press International.

 

Her photos appeared

in publications worldwide.

 

She won a George Polk award

for her Vietnam work in 1967

and was the first woman

to receive the Robert Capa Award

for her coverage of the civil war

in Lebanon in 1976.
