A photographer for the Louisville newspapers for 40 years, she has a unique project that may never be replicated. Inspired by personal stories told in photographs for the Farm Security Administration in 1935-44, especially by women, she finally found first-time parents in Louisville who were willing to let her photograph the first year of life with a new baby. The project continues with the third generation, and produced a 2009 book, "An American Family: Three Decades with the McGarveys". She has also been the photographer for travel and food books, worked for National Geographic, and was a member of the Courier-Journal and Louisville Times photography staff that won a 1976 Pulitzer Prize for coverage of school desegregation. She was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. A native of southern Indiana, she is a graduate of Ohio State University.
