13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Killer Art

Impromptu photo shoot of a true crime author turned into far more ironic and vivid storytelling. Originally, I suggested I shoot him in urban area. We randomly decided to take a few pictures in an underpass located not far from where he grew up. Once inside the tunnel - the graffiti all but jumped out at us, we were all without words for a moment. Being he writes specifically about mob killers, the scene became even more profound upon noticing the word 'killer' woven through all the vivid and overlapping spray paint brilliance.
