"You've got to recognize the 'somebody-ness' of everybody" – John H. WhitePulitzer-price winning photojournalist John H. White recently gave a talk at Middlebury College. Afterward, he took some time to connect with a young admirer.

My photo story with text by Blair Kloman about the Addison County Fair and Field Days Demolition Derby is now online at The Warbler. Head over their and check out “Collision Course”.
