From the ten photos Jackie sent me this month I very quickly narrowed it down to two images, connected by a theme. It looks like Jackie’s subjects did a lot of hanging around this month – from art shows to rooftops to editing dungeons. So, I chose two photos of people hanging out – literally and figuratively.
So Will had a whole extra week to prepare for Eddie Adams Workshop and therefore I have seen even more of his potential entries. As typical of discussions based on one’s blood, sweat and tears, we disagreed passionately on some things. My point was Will’s strength lies in capturing seemingly trivial moment that are only revealed to be beautiful or interesting later on in a single shot. Here are Will’s photos from June that have that certain something that I think should define his EAW entry.
We missed March’s peer review, primarily because it was miserable in the city and I didn’t have any assignments or inspirations. By the looks of April, Will probably had a lovely March that we will never get to see. Good thing we are back in action with New York warming up!
So, this first peer edit doesn’t quite seem fair, with my initial selects just over 100 but Will sending me 234 pretty photos to agonize over.

I read so much about this car and its antics that I came to realize it was pretty much the 5th member of Team Great Job!

For some of these shots I can imagine Will sprint far enough away from the car to get the composition he sees in his head. It makes me immensely happy.
Great job Will!

To initiate what may or may not be an ongoing series for Meridian, Jackie and I have swapped digital contact sheets and edited each other’s work. I’m posting my edit of Jackie’s road trip essay “Forever Young” today, and Jackie will post her edit of my work tomorrow.
