Working at the Boston Globe is fast. These three weeks have flown by and in no small part due to the amazing energy of the other photographers and editors. Each day is a surprise and I've had some terrific and quirky assignments (Exhibit A, the greasy pole in Gloucester, see below).
It's definitely a change from the way I was working in Denmark, but it's exciting to synthesize the two worlds. Plus, you can't beat newspaper assignments in terms of their sheer randomness. Who could anticipate I'd be shooting a group of men running down a greased telephone pole suspended over the ocean in Massachusetts my first weekend back in the US? You can see that story here.
The two portraits below are outtakes from an assignment in Kennebunkport, ME. Picture opportunities were all over the tourist town. Donald, the fisherman, I literally found on the side of the road while on my way back to the city.
And of course, what would a summer internship be without Fourth of July pictures? I had never attended the Pops Festival before and it certainly exceeded expectations. The concert was tremendous and you can't go wrong with massive amounts of confetti and thousands of people passionate about one thing: America.
At least in terms of photo opportunities.
