To pay homage to her, I brought along some black and white film and developing chemicals on a recent photo trip to Ireland, processing the film in my hotel room each night. No bombs falling around me, but the meaning was there.
In "Shooting the Russian War" Margaret Bourke-White makes the point that no other photojournalists from the "West" were in the Soviet Union when war broke out with the Nazi invasion. People in the "West" had no idea what was happening there so she had a "scoop". As Goldberg writes "The photographs she was sending back had a quality that photography itself was rendering increasing rare: the quality of revelation"* Her images truly opening eyes when printed in America's Life magazine.
