Well, not the machine in this case, but the printing press.
I shot a portrait yesterday for the Globe+Mail of David McCallum, an American man who was freed after 29 years in prison for a murder that he was forced by police to confess as a 16-year-old.
Mr. McCalum was an incredibly gracious man and we were both pleased with the pictures.
Now, before I could even see today’s paper, an editor at the Globe sent me a note to apologize for the paper’s printing of the portrait. The e-mail goes a long way in my book – to know that he cared enough about the picture to send me a note means a lot.
Aside from how much newspaper print sucks, I’m not sure what this all means. I guess I just wanted to show the portrait as it was meant to be seen.
