Photographed a public meeting to consider name changes for JEB Stuart High School in Falls Church, VA this weekend. JEB Stuart was a confederate general in the Civil War. Confederate names and symbols have become the center of a very useful discussion about civil rights, historical interpretation and how we value diversity. The audience had a wide range of suggestions, some of which were directly opposite one another and all of which were sincerely held. All photos were made with my handy-dandy little 35mm Prime Lens. Clearly its a limitation, but for some reason I love this lens anyway. It just has a certain look and very seldom lets me down.
