So I'm a journalist at heart, and a former employ of the Washington Post, which gives me a very very loose affinity with the authors of this masterpiece. But in all the brouhaha about the end of journalism as we know it, some of the very best journalism is still being created, and I consider this photo essay series to be among the best I've ever seen.
As it happens, thanks to my friend Ron Wyman who is doing a documentary on the movie Someplace like America that will be shot in Berlin, NH, the photographer Michael Williamson was hanging out in my house in Berlin last week.
He was there along with writer Dale Maharidge because together they wrote Journey to Nowhere which is the inspiration bethind Someplace LIke America. SO I got to cook dinner for Buzz McGloughlin, producer of the film and Writer/Director Aaron Weiderspah and wait up for and then talk till 2 am with these guys.
I love my life.
