Boston Globe Clip

A minor additive to the blog today. The photo desk of the Boston Globe called me at the Metro yesterday asking if i had any art they can use from the MBTA escalator death. I said yes and sent them an image. It ran in today's Boston Globe.

Faith & Devastation

What better a way to for me to begin this photographic blog than with a moment when two subject matters that I find most interesting mesh. Faith & Devastation came together this week when the New Fellowship Baptist Church in Dorchester, Ma was destroyed by a five alarm fire. The Church's story became the news of the day after the fire was ruled an arson by inspectors. I spent a part of my morning today photographing the reamins inside.

Weekend trip to NY

I took a trip down to NY and met with Jan Latus of the Nowy Dziennik "Polish Daily News" one of the countries largest Polish Newspapers if not the largest. I thanked him for the nice space I was given for my story on the parishioners of Saint Stanislaus Kostka Church in Adams, Massachusetts that was closed by the archdiocese of Springfield, Ma. I met with his boss who also seemed to really enjoy my photos and writing, she asked me to continue to cover the story of the church's struggle for the paper. I am thrilled and will return to Adams soon.
The next day while in New York among lessons in video editing I met with some friends who are working on a movie documentary about the well known wrestler turned pastor Ted "The Million Dollar Man" DiBiase. He was giving a men's retreat out on Shelter Island. I had a moment to photograph him.
