Here is a recent assignment I shot to show the current progress of the Hoover Dam Bypass. The bypass is a pretty amazing thing to see, especially since it is located next to the Hoover Dam. The finishing touches are being done to the support beam that links the two sides together. It definitely makes the Hoover Dam, a place I always have to go when someone visits me from outside of town, a lot more interesting. The bottom photos are a couple Polaroids I shot while photographing the bypass. I shot them using a Polaroid backed Holga. The temperature was around 115 degrees that day and kept melting the glue that holds the Polaroid together. Every time I would let the Polaroid cook, it would just start peeling apart on its own.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
