Actor Wendell Pierce (who you might know fondly as Bunk from The Wire or Antoine Batiste in Treme) was a joy to photograph. We set up our backdrop and lights in his den and we had a long talk about his efforts in rebuilding New Orleans and our mutual love of the South. We photographed him for The New York Times’ “What It’s Really Like to Work in Hollywood* (*If you’re not a straight white man)," which we highly recommend you read.
