Here are some exciting programs I'm doing over the next couple of months:


As part of Foto Week DC and the Newseum's exhibition on the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the pictures I shot for LIFE Magazine are showing on the forty-foot Atrium screen. This slide show runs continuously on a loop for the duration of the Berlin exhibit: http://www.newseum.org/news/news.aspx?item=nh_BERL091103&style=f
