I recently photographed UC Santa Cruz graduate student Chelsey Juarez in the Stable Isotope Lab on the campus of UC Santa Cruz for Mark Murrmann at Mother Jones Magazine, a new client. Chelsey has come up with a way of identifying the remains of immigrants who die crossing the US border from Mexico by their teeth. Here are a few outtakes.
Every once in a while I’m commissioned to photograph the same person at different times for different clients. Bay Area writer Michael Pollan is one such subject whom I met and photographed at his home two and a half years apart and most recently this month. It’s always interesting to solve the same problem twice; same subject, same location and same general request from the client. Much of Michael’s work centers around food and our relationship to it. It’s a fascinating subject and he does a terrific job shedding light on a complex issue. His books are a must-read for anyone who eats food. You can learn more about it here.
