I was hired in May to photograph the graduation of Nick Culbertson from Harvard University for the New Jersey Star-Ledger. The story was the culmination of years of reporting on Nick and his sister and grandmother, who were homeless and living in a motel in New Jersey. Through the determination of the family and a handful of community supporters, both children graduated from college.

Thanks to Chris at the Star-Ledger for hiring me for the shoot. Unfortunately, the story didn’t get quite as much play as everyone had hoped, so I’ve also posted a few outtakes in the recent work section of this website.
