Marion Barry

I was fortunate to be assigned to photograph Marion Barry for The Washington Post Magazine (sometime around 2005). The shoot was scheduled for 11am at his Anacostia office. I arrived early, however he wasn’t there, his assistants didn’t know where he was, and so I waited. I waited for 5 hours! When he finally arrived, the street became electric. Kids came running up, people shook his hand, and he basked in the attention. He truly was the Mayor for Life.
