For those of you not familiar with Joe McNally, take a look at his website and blog. He is one of the great shooters of our time. His work with National Geographic has been inspiring. Shortly after 9/11 my wife and I traveled into New York City to see a photo exhibit in Grand Central Station, "Faces of Ground Zero-Portraits of the Heroes of September 11". Our nerves and emotions still raw from that horrible event took us to this this place of compelling life size images of the true heroes of that day. I have followed his work since then.
On the lighted side, take a look at this video. The Neanderthal Beauty.
I'm sure it will make you smile.
