Her first task was Bertrand Russell, and since then has photographed everyone in the news, and many of these photographs are in this book from eminent churchmen to Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Alongside them are the pictures from her own village, from her time spent in retreat, at family and village baptisms, weddings and funerals. R7. Fine/Near Fine.
