i don’t know if this is a mash of two frames or something adam and oliver actually created, but the book these came from, Ghetto, is still one of my favorite photo books.

Another 8x10 outtake from the mental_floss story on The Barkley Marathons. In this photo is founder Lazarus Lake (right) and co-founder Raw Dog at the Frozen Head State Park trailhead starting / finish point of the race. (Technically the it’s at the gate about 30 feet away)
This is in my head just now.
On a roll with posting 8x10s lately, so here’s another. This is Kate and Alan on their wedding day back in May.
As LGTBQ equality gradually permeates my state of Alabama, I am always excited to contribute in any small way I can. The Huffington Post’s Lila Shapiro has spent quite a bit of time in the South reporting on all things LGBTQ and has filed today a story I photographed a couple of months ago. It covers a lot of ground, but the man above is Paul Hard, professor at Auburn University. Paul lost his husband in 2013, tragically and very shortly after their wedding, and is currently embroiled in various litigations concerning their rights as a married couple in Alabama.

This is nuts.
I photographed John Hall of Post Office Pies for the New York Times. Ran a couple of days ago but I’m just seeing it (thanks for the heads up Steph). Full story here.
Here’s an outtake from a story I shot for mental_floss on the insanity that is the ultra-marathon race The Barkley. The little speck at the bottom of the frame is Jared Campbell, the only finisher of the 2014 race, on his first-lap descent of “Rat Jaw”. This race is so insane I can’t explain it. See the link below for way, way more info.
A short description of the race (as explained here) is as follows:
The Barkley is considered one of the toughest 100 mile races in the world. It has 59,100 feet of climb (and 59,100 feet of descent), more than any other 100 mile race, more than the 33,000 ft. of climb at Hardrock, and more than the 45,000 ft. at Nolan’s 14.
