Ralph Nader for Pacific Standard

June 13, 2016 9:17 am

In April Pacific Standard sent me on assignment to photograph Ralph Nader at his office in Washington D.C. 

He was being interviewed by Lydia DePillis about a wide range of topics, but the main focus was the current political landscape and its effect on the upcoming presidential election. I was only given permission to photograph him during the interview- he even asked his assistant to pass on a note that read “I don’t pose for for portraits”. But after the interview I asked him to walk over to a white wall so that I could take a few more pictures of him. I got 3 shots in and then he was done. 

Below are a few of the pictures I took, and you can the interview in full by clicking here

Many thanks to Creative Director Taylor Le.
