Made the list (I checked it twice) â€“ Smithsonian Magazineâ€™s Most Powerful Photos of 2017
End of the year lists are a lot of fun, a way to look back and categorize what has happened during our collective trip around the sun. This year I am honored to have my C3PO image chosen for this particular list alongside work the photo editors describe as â€œthe 17 images that delighted and captivated us most this year.â€
A big thank you to everyone involved in this, especially Photo Editor,,Jeff Campagna and Smithsonian Magazine for asking me to photograph C3PO, a national treasure by any measure. Working with the objects in the museumâ€™s collection is always the best kind of challenge, to bring something unique to the familiar and iconic.
