I made these portraits recently for an interesting story about how exonerations are denied to the wrongfully convicted. It was co-published between @propublica and @theatlantic. James Thompson, 1st photo, and JJ Owens, were convicted for the same crime - the rape and murder of a young woman in the 80s in Baltimore and both men have since been cleared by DNA. But, not before Owens served 20 years and Thompson served 30. Thompson was released after taking an Alford Plea, guaranteeing his immediate release from prison with no retrial and no danger of a new conviction — if he’d agree to plead guilty. He has been out of prison for less than six months and is trying to get his life back on track. “Did I want to take that? Absolutely not. But I wanted to go home.” In contrast, Owens refused the Alford Plea, and eventually the State declined to retry him - clearing his record of the conviction. @grainimages #alfordplea #wrongfulconviction #baltimore #maryland #justicesystem

Everything you need to know about the beauty of this man's spirit is seen in his smile. Thank you, @leesingsrnb for trusting me with your image. #r&;b #musician #singer

Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist, at the Capitol Hill townhouse where he lives part-time and runs Breitbart News. For the @nytimes. 🙌🏼 @tannercurtis @grainimages

Sad to hear of the passing of Simeon Wright, the cousin of Emmett Till, who was in the same bedroom the night Till was abducted and murdered. I had the honor of photographing Mr. Wright several years ago. He was a kind man with a warm handshake and easy disposition. RIP. 🙏🏼 #simeonwright #emmetttill

Thank you to David Walker at @pdnonline for asking me to share my experience as a pregnant editorial photographer in the September issue of the magazine. Thank you to the women who reached out to me after I announced my pregnancy to tell me they had similar concerns and fears. You made me feel less alone. ❤️ I would love to hear more thoughts and experiences. I'd also love a discussion about how to be a freelancing mom. It's the biggest challenge of my life. On a separate note, how beautiful is that image by @gregkahn ? #workingmomma #pregnancy #pdn
