Eugene Smith, Dorothea Lange, and Henri Cartier-Bresson.  She has published seven books: Old News: Resurrection City;  Circus Days;  Firehouse;  Street Cops;  A Time That Was: Irish Moments;  Jill’s Dogs;  and Ireland Ever.

She says, "I’m a New York street shooter and have pictures of NYC in the 60s, 70s, and 80s that will be THE all-time drop-dead New York Book. I’m about to start taking it around to publishers. I love assignments and am ready to hit the road at a moment’s notice. I’m trying to find projects that wil benefit children and animals. Animal welfare is my passion; I keep trying to get editors interested in stories of the many ways they help us. I’m still trying."
