Murder at the Peninsula Hotel

My picture ran in The New York Times on February 5th with a very sad story about a mother who allegedly poisoned her young son at the Peninsula Hotel in midtown.

Similar assignments sometimes turn into scrums with photographers aggressively jostling for position. But all the photographers on this assignment were very respectful. Everyone shot their frames in silence and then left quietly.

There is a photo of the boy's body bag, but I decided not to publish it here.

Help for Undocumented Haitians

My photo ran along with a story on January 29th about the NY Bar Association providing free legal aid on taking advantage of Obama's temporary protected status for undocumented Haitians. It was a challenging shoot as I wasn't allowed to show the faces of any undocumented people.
