There is always something a little exciting but also intimidating about photographing another photographer. Sara and I were in the same graduating class at Ohio University where we studied photojournalism and worked together some at the school newspaper. We stressed about getting assignments in on time, were always trying to find new and interesting subjects in the over-photographed small town of Athens, Ohio, and shared the joys of learning alongside so many talented students from some amazing professors. It was a really rich time of learning for me, and I am sure Sara would say the same.
SO…of course I wanted to deliver images to Sara that she would treasure as well as respect as an artist and journalist, you know, no pressure. But when I got there, I kind of forgot about the pressure. I just enjoyed catching up and spending the evening with two lovely people. And in some ways, I think that is the way some of my best work is done.
