On July 4th, Dominick and I were hiking up Mt. Cardigan to our AMC high hut base-camp. Even though the scenery was absolutely breathtaking, he was preoccupied. He was worried that his editors would be unhappy with the quality of his work.
Earlier that day, he made some photos of Hillary Clinton at a small town parade. This was no easy task. He was dragged along in a rope lasso with all the other press professionals. Though cumbersome, this method was preferable to the campaign’s original plan: to put all the press in two barricaded pens on the parade route, allowing access at only those two points. A former White House photographer was pushed around by some junior campaign staffer. Another photographer shot parts on his iPhone, because he had better access that way.
Dominick described the assignment as “a matter of millimeters and moments.” That is, if you’re off by a millimeter, in time or distance, you’re not making the right photo.
Despite the difficulty of the assignment, Dominick made some wonderful images. One of them was selected for the front page of the New York Times Sunday paper.
This is an awesome achievement, and I’m so proud of my husband!
