Full Circle

Sep 8

In history at 7:54pm

I’ve often commented on how a photog’s life runs in circles, and there are pictures you make and people you work with that somehow, either stick with you, or you encounter again, many years after that first set of exposures. This weekend, there will be a small gathering of friends of the Ground Zero exhibit, with Tom Brokaw in attendance, and saying a few words. We both worked on the update of LIFE’s One Nation book, Tom writing the new forward, and me shooting the ten years later portraits. Not the first time we have ever gotten together.

Almost 30 years ago, we went to the top of Rockefeller Center, just when he was taking the reins of the NBC evening anchor chair. It was the opener for a cover story about Tom for People magazine. Good guy, knowledgeable journalist. And of course, in the distance….

It’s a little spooky if that watch of his is a Casio F-91W.

Hi Joe,
I’m a firefighter in Wisconsin, and was at your tour stop in Madison. I’ll be in NYC with the family 9/27-10/2, any chance Faces will be extended? Thanks again for all you have done for the Brothers.
