Aunt Winnie (95), Pittsburgh, PA


Winifred Feise: 1919-2014
My aunt Winnie passed away yesterday at the age of 95. She would have been 96 next month. She lived in Pittsburgh and my wife Tess and I had the pleasure of visiting her on a road trip we took last summer. That is when I made this photograph. Little did I know it would be the last time I saw her. Up until the end she was an incredibly smart, sophisticated, opinionated, loving and strong woman. I feel lucky to have known her and only wish that I could have spent more time with her in these later years. Rest In Peace Winnie.

Here’s a story I did for Matter, an online science magazine about science and technology. I photographed Eleanor Reid and her parents for a day. Eleanor is deaf and wears a Cochlear implant. The story is about how some people feel the Cochlear implant is ruining deaf culture. You can see how the images were used here: https://medium.com/matter

A spread and an outtake from a story I shot for Denison Magazine. Juan Bernabe, who is gay, hails from the working class city of Lawrence, MA. Despite his struggles with bullying in high school he excelled academically and as a dancer. He is currently a double major at Denison College in Ohio. I photographed him in his room and at his high school while he was on Christmas break.

First day home!
