Portrait photography for The Wall Street Journal
Sara Hirsch is communications specialist at the New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence. She was interviewed by The Wall Street Journal for their incredible article on domestic violence during the Covid lockdown.
Sara and I had to create a look that felt warm and approachable, but also showed immense respect for the serious nature of her work. We achieved this by focusing a lot on the expression in her eyes. We also played with the angles to create something that felt confident.
It was an honor to contribute a photograph to an article about such a serious topic.
