Back in the fall, I spent part of an afternoon capturing Indiana University student Etain Prill while they worked in a campus printmaking studio. I was fortunate to have this opportunity as part of a recent issue of The Washington Post Magazine examining unwritten constitutional rights in the wake of a Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. Writing in a concurrence to that decision, Justice Clarence Thomas called on the court to also reconsider several other cases that established such unwritten rights – including the right to same-sex intimacy established in Lawrence v. Texas in 2003.See more photos

Scenes along U.S. Bicycle Route 235
Last month, I had the opportunity to spend a chunk of a weekend photographing the sights along Indiana USBR 235, a 120-mile leg of the U.S. Bicycle Route System between Indianapolis and Seymour, for a travel section feature in The Washington Post. This shoot was a lot of fun. Beyond a shot list of a few places to capture from the reporter, Andrea Sachs, I had the creative freedom to drive the route and make pictures. The route was gorgeous in all its peak fall foliage glory, and these photos cannot begin to do it justice. For years, I have enjoyed riding several of the roads along this route. This was a neat chance to combine a couple of my passions – photography and cycling – to showcase some of these hidden gems to a national audience.See more photos
Syrian refugees in Indiana adjust to Trump’s America
I recently photographed the first family of Syrian refugees to resettle in Indianapolis for a story in The Washington Post. The story focused on refugees in Indiana and how they are coping since President Donald Trump’s election. Trump’s Vice President, Mike Pence, tried unsuccessfully to ban Syrian refugees when he was Indiana’s governor.
Syrian refugees in Indiana
Back in August, I photographed Syrian refugees who have resettled in Indiana for a story in The Washington Post. Their resettlement comes in spite of efforts by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence who directed state agencies to halt Syrian resettlement. This week a federal appeals court affirmed a preliminary injunction blocking Pence’s order, dismissing it as “nightmare speculation.”
