The book was made into a feature length documentary film by the same name and screened worldwide. Her work on wounded veterans has continued and her 2006 "Marine Wedding" portrait, which shows a severely disfigured marine with his young bride on their wedding day, is considered to be an iconic image of life during wartime.
