Cherry blossom walk

With my dear Ruth. In and with love.

Sakura, in Washington DC.

Iron Men

I recently photographed members of Ironworkers Local 5 putting in the beams for an expansion of the Laborer's International Union's (LiUNA) headquarters in Washington DC.

Photography began before dawn... and these men, who began work at 3:00 AM, are incredibly skilled, hardworking, agile, and rugged. It is tough, dangerous, and detailed work. They do it extraordinarily well.

Thanks to Ed Rehfeld of LiUNA for the assignment.

First Lady, Michelle Obama

I photographed First Lady Michelle Obama on assignment for the Campaign to Change Direction and Give An Hour. She was speaking about a new program promoting effective national mental health education.

This is my favorite image from the event.

Thanks to Dr. Barbara Van Drahlen, Kristin Lee, Lauren Iskowitz, and all the other good folks at Give an Hour.

Rosa Parks 102nd birthday celebration - Beyond the Bus/DC

My dear friend Ella McCall-Haygen invited me to a program celebrating the 102nd birthday of civil rights heroine Rosa Parks, held at the Panorama Room of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Anacostia (this location offers the best view of the city imaginable by the way).

There were displays of historic photographs and artwork, with presentations by Dr. Roberta McLeod and Ms. McCall-Haygen from Pathways to Freedom and others, and special offerings by the estimable Ms. Hannah Hawkins, director of the nearby Children Of Mine Center. The young participants in the program gave forth original poetry, and created scenes from Ms. Parks' life, that honored her work, and the work of her husband, Raymond Parks.
