|Biographical information||Barbara Gluck was born in 1938 and raised in New York City. She graduated from New York University with a BA in journalism and pursued a career in magazine advertising. In April 1968, Gluck was invited to travel for three weeks in Southeast Asia. While there she began taking photos and selling her work to the The New York Times, the Associated Press, and Newsweek. In January 1972, The New York Times sent Gluck and her husband, Joseph Treaster, as a team to Vietnam, and the couple covered the war until November 1973.|
She photographed the crew on board a 14-hour B-52 bombing mission, and she was also the only photographer and woman to spend 24 hours with the Vietcong. In 1973, the World Press Photo Foundation honored her with the award of Outstanding News Photo of the year for her work in Vietnam. In 1974, she received the Poynter fellowship from Yale University for excellence in journalism. Recently, Gluck returned to Vietnam to visit the sites she photographed during the war and see the changes that have come to a land that was destroyed by fighting only three decades ago.
