See Food. Shoot Food.

Five Years Ago Today

It was five years ago today that Elliot Spitzer resigned.  I have had the privilege of photographing many disgraced politicians, but none greater than Governor Spitzer. We can only speculate what would have been, but when I shot this sometime between when the wiretapping began and his resignation, I was pretty sure I had a photograph of a future president in a Rochester diner having a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream on top.
