I had a great assignment from the Wall Street Journal the week before US elections this year. Republican Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts was campaigning for re-election against Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren. I spent a day photographing the campaign, from a pancake breakfast in the morning to meetings with supporters throughout the day to riding on the bus with Brown’s family and staff between stops to an evening rally in one of the gyms in which Brown played high school basketball. Brown, who assumed office in 2010 in a special election after the death of Senator Ted Kennedy, lost the election.
I couldn’t have asked for much better access, and my thanks go out Brown and his staff for allowing such an intimate look into the campaign and to my editor at the Wall Street Journal. Also, I need to give a shout out to Ian MacLellan for helping with some logistics on the day of the shoot.
