Selections of the best images produced on assignment or for stock from the month of February.

In February I payed a visit to the most Northeastern part of the city to photograph the Bridgeburg neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA for WHYY’s Keystone Crossroads Embedded 2020 series.

Reuters send me to the Innovation Health & Design Lab at University of Delaware STAR Campus in Newark, Delaware to photograph graduate student Haobo Zhang working on his thesis on the challenge of designing transgender underwear.

The month ended with an announcement of representatives of Safehouse of an (tentative) opening of a supervised injection facility in South Philadelphia. A plan that ultimately ended up in the freezer after generating some backslash from local residents.

Selections of the best images produced on assignment or for stock from the month of January.

This month included coverage of the 120th annual New Year’s parade of Mummers strutting down South Broad Street (for PhillyVoice). From their North Philly warehouse, Philly Foodworks offers winter produce to online customers (photographed on assignment for The Philadelphia Inquirer). The mortgage was burned in a ceremony at the Paul Robeson House in West Philadelphia (on assignment for WHYY).
