After 3 and a half months at the Palm Beach Post in Florida, I'm back home in Ohio for a couple weeks before heading to DC for 8 months.
I worked on a story about a man named Daniel, who was on the Waiting List for a heart transplant. He has a wonderful family and I'm thankful he opened his life to me. Below is a one of my favorite frames I made of him and his wife.
You can see the full story (edit subject to change a bit) on my portfolio site. It's running as a photo page with a story in Sunday's Palm Beach Post, so I'll post a tearsheet when I get the PDFs. Big thanks to PBPost editors Mark Edelson and Greg Lovett for their encouragement and editing help. And a big thanks to David Lee, friend and founder of the Waiting List website and non-profit group. Eventually, a multimedia piece will be posted to that site. The site is still in soft launch mode and we hope to add many more stories to it in the future and help to spread the word about the need for more organ donors in the United States.
I also am working on a gallery called "Place to Place." Only a few photos up now, but will add to it in the coming week. Inspired by my buddies Charles, Andy and Sam's artistic personal photos on their sites, I decided to create a section for my "pretty pictures" that I like from my trips, travels and assignments over the past year or so.
