Washington D.C. – Conference

At the beginning of May, I was brought on to photograph Finance & Society, an economic conference in Washington D.C. produced by The Institute for New Economic Thinking.  A dinner on May 5th at the National Museum of Women in the Arts featured a keynote by US Senator Elizabeth Warren, (D-MA).

The following day, the conference was held at the International Monetary Fund HQ2, featuring Janet Yellen (Chair of the Board of Governors, Federal Reserve System), Christine Lagarde (Managing Director, IMF), Sarah Bloom Raskin (Deputy Treasury Secretary) and other prominent figures in economics.

I always appreciate an opportunity to document people at the top of their field.  Whether it’s economics, sports, comedy, government, the area of specialty isn’t important.  A person’s knowledge and expertise is apparent in the confidence they show in their actions and words.  I enjoy working to translate that to the still image.
