Last week I got to hang out at Marian lacrosse team practice to photograph John Jessup, a senior captain, who has a prosthetic leg. Jessup was born missing four toes on his right toe and with Fibular Hemimelia, a condition where one leg is substantially shorter and smaller than the other. At age 15 when he started experiencing pain in his knees and hip, he decided to have his right leg amputated. I’ve never photographed lacrosse before and although I was unfortunately unable to shoot a game for this story, it looked like a very interesting – and challenging – sport to shoot. His coach refers to him as an assistant coach because of his skill on the field and knowledge of the game.
