Working for the Tribal Newspaper, The Southern Ute Drum, takes me into the field quite often, and sometimes literally. This image was taken during an annual highway cleanup on reservation lands, this morning was spent covering a short piece on spring cleanup. The idea here is that while not all news is packed with glamour or even excitement- the art of capturing the moment and creating a nice image is still at the heart of reportage and photojournalism. I think these images have a wonderful quality to them.
Do you find yourself taking the mundane and creating beauty that might not otherwise be recognized when you approach certain subjects with a camera and an artistic intent?
