Another Historic Female Photojournalist

We just love a good human interest story, don’t we? Just yesterday I mentioned Vivian Maier’s "too-good-to-be-true" discovery, the unknown master finally getting her due for her phenomenal photographs. Ms. Maier’s story has definitely captured hearts and minds, and there’s another elderly woman with a great photographic story garnering well deserved, if belated, attention. The Today show recently interviewed Ruth Gruber who, at 100 years old is being recognized for her photographs of holocaust survivors as a young photojournalist in the 1940s. The piece was made in conjunction with a Showtime documentary of Ms. Gruber called Ahead of Time. Look for it on the cable network through the end of March and learn more about this interesting woman.
