One of my favorite assignments this summer was the Lois Lowry story I shot for New York Times Magazine. The author of the cult classic The Giver was vacationing up in Maine, so Matt and I packed up the car and made a road trip out of it. We spent a beautiful summer day cruising through Vacationland, listening to some tunes, and catching up on our travels. When we arrived Lois showed us to her barn, which made for the perfect studio, and got set up. We spent the afternoon chatting about why they took so long to turn the book into a movie, what Jeff Bridges is like in person, and what kinds of things her fans write letters about. All in all just a great day to be a photographer!
