In our line of work, we are fortunate to meet some truly amazing people, many of whom we also get to photograph in the places they live and work. And the inspiration doesn’t stop with faces—every time we travel, whether it’s to visit a new location or return to a beloved favorite destination, we capture it. As you might imagine, we’ve built up a pretty amazing archive of this documentary photography over the years—especially now that we’ve launched The Current, our annual publication.
Today, we’re excited to begin highlighting some of the most special images from the trove in our new weekly series, Flashback. And there’s no one better to share the stories behind the pictures than Anne Chandler, our resident photographer of more than 13 years, whose ability to spin a tale rivals her skills behind the camera lens. Welcome to Flashback, edition 1. Enjoy.
