Tearsheet: New York Times Business section front – employee turnover affects production

In the Jan. 3, 2023, edition of the New York Times, a couple of my photos from a recent assignment  are the lede images on the Business section front. The story is about a 100+year-old factory that manufactures precise metal wire and pin pieces for the aerospace and medical industries, and the impact that high employee turnover has had on the factory’s production. 

Thanks to Jeanne and Crista for the call for the assignment and the editing. 

Tearsheet: The Hardest Part About Getting Older – portrait in the Wall Street Journal

I recently had the opportunity to photograph Sherry Mendelson and her husband to accompany a personal essay she wrote for the Wall Street Journal’s “Encore” section about retirement and aging. It’s a great piece that goes through her feelings on aging after recovering from knee replacement surgeries. 

On the left is how the image appeared in print (I think it’s the biggest I’ve had a photo printed in the WSJ!) in the Nov. 17, 2022, edition of the paper, and below you can see a screenshot of the online version, where you can read the article.

Thanks to Johnny for the call and to Sherry and Fred for spending a little time with me on a nice afternoon.

Tearsheet: Fidelity CEO Abigail Johnson on the cover of The Pulteney Street Survey

I was very excited to learn that my image of Fidelity CEO Abby Johnson was licensed for the cover of the Summer 2022 issue of the The Pulteney Street Survey, the alumni magazine of Hobart and William Smith Colleges. The magazine was a special issue celebrating the bicentennial of the college. 

Tearsheet: DESIGN EARTH for Nomad Magazine in Germany

Published this week in Germany, I have three spreads in issue 12 of Nomad Magazine, a beautifully-designed magazine covering art, architecture, and design. For the story, I photographed Rania Ghosn and El Hadi Jazairy of DESIGN EARTH, a speculative architectural research practice based in Cambridge, Mass. In the first image, they are seen with part of Trash Peaks (2017), an installation including a folding screen, a carpet, and ceramic figures, relating to waste management practices in Seoul, South Korea, presented at the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism. is an Associate Professor of Architecture and Urbanism at MIT and Jazairy is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan and currently Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism. You can read the interview online (or in print if you’re in Europe and near a good newsstand!)

Two New York Times front pages!

It was such a wonderful and exciting surprise to find my photos on two New York Times front pages last month, a first in my career. Both images were below the fold, but it’s such an honor to have my work featured so prominently in the paper. The two issues were the Oct. 10, and Oct. 28, national editions featuring coverage of Boston’s mayor race and damage in New England after a powerful Nor’easter storm blew through the region.

Thanks to the editors and designers, as always!

Tearsheet: Alison Bechdel portrait in Time magazine

In the May 10, 2021 issue of Time, my portrait of cartoonist Alison Bechdel accompanies an interview about her work and her latest book, The Secret to Superhuman Strength, which chronicles her lifelong obsession with exercise. A big thanks to Kim Bubello and the rest of the team at Time for the great assignment and great play in print and online.

You can see a few more images from our afternoon in the Vermont woods near her home in the Recent Work section of this site. The images are available to license through Redux.

Tearsheet: Flying cars and New Hampshire’s “Jetsons Bill” for Bloomberg Hyperdrive

Last fall I worked on an incredible story about flying cars for Bloomberg’s new future of transportation vertical Hyperdrive, published this week. Flying cars are the the perennial just-around-the-corner technology of 1950s dreams, but now there are at least two companies with plans to take their inventions to market, one of which is actively doing test drives and flights in New Hampshire. The reason that New Hampshire has become a focal point of Terrafugia’s and Pal-V’s flying cars (or “roadable aircraft,” officially) is that last year the state passed the so-called Jetson’s Bill, the first law of its kind in the United States, which provides a legal framework for regulating the usage of flying cars on roads and in the air in the state.

The January 2021 issue of Germany’s Harvard Business Manager magazine included a few of my pictures of office plants abandoned during the pandemic. Thanks to Redux and Laif for working out the licensing!

Semper Ficus published over 5 days in Germany’s Taz

The Berlin daily newspaper Taz (Tageszeitung) published a selection of photos from my piece on abandoned office plants during the pandemic with one photo each day for the week of November 23 to 27, 2020. I’ve never seen a photo essay spread across a week like that, and I love it! Thanks to Redux and Laif for making it happen!
