Long after I became a photojournalist, I realized the influence that reading had on my career. Learning from photo stories became ingrained on my brain. I knew photo stories had beginnings, middles and ends, just like news stories. There’s a system.
My story on Ben finally ran yesterday, on my last day of work. I felt like I went out with a good note. It was nice to see my vision for the story play out through fruition. All the photos ran in black and white over three pages starting on the A1.
