She shot the cover story "Inside Provence" for National Geographic Traveler's April 2006 issue and captured rare images of Prince Charles for her May 2006 National Geographic magazine feature, "Not Your Typical Radical." Catherine's film Brooklyn Bridge premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in 1984. She specializes in photographing in Vietnam and recently had a huge retrospective at the Art Vietnam Gallery in Hanoi.
