Despite the early wake up time, the 2009 St. Anthony’s Meek & Mighty Triathlon was a blast to shoot. The athletes were incredibly inspiring, and there was no shortage of cool things to shoot at every turn.
photography is not only a record of the moment and of the event in front of you — for me it’s also a record of myself. and there are times, when i want no paper trail, no indicator of my mood, no recollection of the destination… no memory of myself.
My favorite writer and I are starting an absolutely heartbreaking story on a little girl named Dani, who was removed from her biological mom’s home a year ago. When the police found her she was locked in a room about the size of a closet, living in her own excrement (and that of a cat that was locked in there with her), with nothing more than a baby bottle and a bare mattress. That’s apparently where she spent the first 7 years of her life.
