The Year in Photos (2015)
2015 was marked by a contentious U.S. presidential campaign, a burgeoning humanitarian crisis as refugees fled Syria, mass shootings, extreme weather, the activist wave of Black Lives Matter, terror attacks in Europe, and a historic Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage. See a selection of images below, and the full project here.
While not an exhaustive account, these photographic retrospectives aim to reveal connections, show a unique angle, and illuminate stories of new beginnings, falls from grace, and families looking for a better world to send their children into.

Our CMS couldn't support large-format galleries, so we used Galleria.js inside an iframe. This was the first large-format gallery published for NBC's local news sites. See a selection of images below, and the full project here.
Assignments: Carter McCall
On February 10, 2015, three young Muslim students were shot dead by their neighbor in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. According to the families of the victims, the man had made repeated threats towards them due to their faith. I commissioned Carter McCall to cover a vigil on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill held the following evening. View selections below, and the published gallery here.
