So sad to hear of her death. She was a wonderful photographer. Ann

R. I. P., Martine. It's a sad day for photography.

Sad news indeed.

I was taken by your choice of photograph - the wedding on Tory Island. I happen to be going to my favourite holiday location tomorrow in Donegal which looks onto Tory Island, an island I've been taking pictures of for years but have yet to visit. My mother, who also passed away this year after a protracted illness, painted the beach and harbour from which a ferry services the island. This was a recent gift from her which has pride of place on my livingroom wall.

Seeing Martine's photo on your site makes a small world feel closer, and the familiar view a little more poignant.

Martine really was a very talented photographer in her own right. Her work is worth noting, saving and showing.

It is sad to hear about her passing.

She was a great photographer. Compared to her husband's work, she did quite similar pictures, but in a more intimate way. As much as I admire HCB's pictures, they can also be a tad distant, and follow a very intellectual approach. I could never really figure out whose work I like more.
