Odds and ends for Indiana University

In the past couple of months, I have slacked a bit in blogging my recent work. In that time period, I’ve shot a variety of things from features to portraits to little slices of campus life. Here are a few favorites from my daily work on assignment for Indiana University Communications:

Retired U.S. Army Col. Richard Welch

Last month I had the opportunity to photograph Richard Welch, a retired U.S. Army colonel, for a story in The Wall Street Journal about the U.S. government’s delay in processing visas for Iraqis who assisted Welch and other American troops during the war. With the rise of the Islamic State and other factions hostile to the United States, these Iraqis and their families now find themselves as targets as they wait years for visas to enter the U.S.

Welch is a doctoral student in Law and Democracy at the Center for Constitutional Democracy at the IU Maurer School of Law. The only thing on the wall in his shared office is a tourist map of Iraq from 2008. During his time serving in Iraq, Welch relied on several Iraqis to build local support for the U.S. mission. Now the lives of those Iraqis remain in danger as they wait years for visas to enter the U.S. Welch has filed letters of support and says he is ashamed the administration has failed to resettle thousands of those who helped save American and Iraqi lives.
