Photographer's Note

One of my favorite places to spend time in Washington DC is the Newseum ~ the museum of news. From pieces of the Berlin Wall to the remains of a journalists' cars that have been bombed and shot at, from a memorial to journalists that have been killed while reporting to a series of presidential dogs, and so much more, it offers vivid history lessons about the world in a stunningly designed building.

In this shot, visitors to the Newseum take in a series of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs, leaving them a bit slack-jawed and lost in thought over these emotional moments from history.

This perspective, taken from the inside of a screening chamber, allowed me to capture this discretely, and without interfering with the mood and wherever they were in their memories. In my mind at least, the diagonal slats give this shot and the people a sort of time-warpish aura...
