ATLANTIC OCEAN – THE ART OF THE SEA
Even though I love hard, breaking news and shedding light on social issues, I also love photos that are quirky and different. Photographer Robert Mayer from the Sun-Sentinel and I came up with the idea for an entire photo series about the ocean. We had some resistance. After all, there were no people in the photos, no car accidents, no fires. But we were able to get the OK on the project, and when the results were in – BOOM, a four-page spread in the paper. Sometimes, you just need someone to believe in an idea. That’s where I come in.
