On assignment: WSJ

I was sent on assignment with the Wall Street Journal to Binghamton, NY. The story (online version here) I was photographing for covered the emotional and financial aftermath of a brutal mass shooting that occurred at the American Civic Association in March, 2009.

After driving all night through a snow storm from New York City to this small, upstate town (with Talia – THANK YOU TALIA!!), I began to make my way through Binghamton making portraits of the place and the people whose lives were deeply and suddenly affected by the loss of their loved ones…
