Hillary Clinton

I photographed Senator Clinton for the Appalachian Regional Commission today.
It was her third speech of the day- and it was only 9:30 in the morning.
I looked to see if she was wearing running shoes. Nope- low heels.
So... I photographed her speaking.
I am always struck by how gracious- and how exceptionally intelligent- she is.


Images from Purim at my chavurah, Fabrangen.
Always a bizarre pleasure.
Prayer and corny, raucous revelry.

Suzanne Dunkley - Bumpkin Pie

Portraits made for Suzanne Dunkley, who with her husband Michael, form the core of the band Bumpkin Pie. Great people, terrific music. The rainbow hand just kinda happened. Nice light. This really is what it looked like... no computer manipulations. Must have been the monkeys (write them at http://www.bumpkinpie.com and ask).

Pete Earley- for Washingtonian

Portrait of writer Pete Earley, for Washingtonian magazine. The story is about Pete's new book, Crazy: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness, in which he describes his tribulations with his mentally-ill adult son, and with how mental illness is dealt with in the American society today.

The photograph shows Pete with two self-portraits created by his son.

Pete is a terrific writer. You can learn more at: http://www.peteearley.com/home/

Restoration Ministries

These photographs were made in support of Restoration Ministries, a Christian organization run by Candace Wheeler in Washington DC. Their mission is to reach out and rehabilitate women caught in the miserable trap of prostitution.

The photographs are not intended to titillate, clearly identify, or in any way degrade or shame these women, but to aid the efforts of Ms. Wheeler and her supporters in their kind and uplifting work.
