Sometimes the fun of following what friends are doing in photography goes deeper than just a classic image. Rick Friedman was out and about in Boston last week, and The Boston Guardian used his editorial coverage to put together the photographs above.
While the title, "A Week of Pride and Disgust," reflects the opinion of the publication (and most of us) over the events, in terms of Rick's skill set as a journalist and a buddy, I've got nothing but PRIDE!
Years ago, well-respected wedding and portrait photographer and educator Monte Zucker was given a Photographer of the Year award by one of the associations. There were four photographers recognized in the presentation - two of them for their coverage of the tragedy of 9-11. I still remember Monte's words,
"I'm so honored to receive this award in the company of these other artists. You see, I get to photograph the way the world should be, while they photograph the world the way it is."
Well, Rick Friedman tells the stories the way they are!
