The image to the right, of Vice President Mike Pence campaigning for President Donald Trump in New Hampshire, was recently selected for inclusion in the American Photography 36 book. It's always such an honor to have my work recognized by the organization and their distinguished panel of judges. From the announcement: "From 7,000 entries, the jury selected only 352 images by a majority vote or better to appear in the book and represent the best pictures from 2019. "

This year, the judges were: Aeriel Brown, Photo Director, Bloomberg Businessweek; Laura Geiser, Photo Producer and Editor; Tara Guertin, Director of Photography, AFAR; Molly Roberts, Photography Editor, Visual Storyteller and Curator; Jolie Ruben, Culture Photo Editor, The New York Times; David Sleight, Design Director, ProPublica.

My work has previously been recognized by the organization in American Photography 35, 34, 33, 32, and 30.

The picture is part of my work covering the 2020 presidential campaign.

Vice President Mike Pence speaks at a Politics and Eggs event at Saint Anselm College's Institute of Politics in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Thu., November 7, 2019. Pence traveled to New Hampshire as a surrogate for Donald Trump to file required paperwork for the president to get on the New Hampshire presidential primary ballot in 2020.
