Rico Rush and Brandon Forrest for Parade Magazine
Two roundtrip drives to New Jersey and an all-out effort to update my web site for the new year has kept me away from thinking much about resolutions or plans for the new year. Instead of that, I've been thinking a lot about details - the wording of a new website text ad that's running next week, a few small design tweaks on this blog (now with comments!) and some deeper thinking about what kind of photos I want to be showing.Here's one of my last tearsheets of 2008 that was significant for getting to meet Rico Rush. Rush is a Vietnam vet, former heroin addict and self-taught mediator who has ended gang wars and shared what he learned to help confront racial and gang-related conflicts around the world. A few more photos are below and the article can be seen here.
