I’m super stoked that I got 5 images selected for AP30 this year. I owe these pictures to the photo editors who gave me amazing assignments last year. The top two are from an assignment at Yellowstone National Park from Clinton Cargill of the NYT Magazine. Middle is from an assignment where I got to ride in a helicopter(!) from Diana Suryakusuma at Bloomberg Businessweek and the last two are from the gnarliest assignment of my life at a humane slaughter house for Ayanna Quint at Modern Farmer. Thanks everybody!
Some artists want their works to last forever, but Motoi Yamamoto compares his art to an arrangement of fresh flowers — it’s alive to enjoy for just a short period of time, and then it becomes a beautiful memory.
