Aside from moving into a new house and having a new office built, I was busy with some editorial work over the last few weeks:
Mentor, Ohio is home to Katie Spotz, a 22-yr-old woman that will attempt to row across the Atlantic Ocean from South America to Africa. I shot a portrait of her for the New York Times.
The story is here with the photo they ran.
This was my favorite shot of her from the shoot.
Scene ran a story about Cuyahoga County's new government scheme and the restructuring involved. The head of that restructuring is Martin Zanotti.
See the full story here.
The Cleveland Orchestra was in the news and I was there for the New York Times. The orchestra threatened to strike, and they did on Monday, January 18, 2010. A writer and I covered their concert on the preceding Thursday and had a good piece. Story is here.
These are the two photos they used in the paper the day of the strike. The web had additional images from the concert night and strike day.
