The Free Lance-Star Photography Department shares the stories behind the photos.
Continuing The Stimulus
The Stimulus: Bringing It Home , a series localizing aspect of the stimulus package, has been continuing on strong. Many of these stories do not lend themselves to photographs easily… how do you take photographs of COBRA coverage? Renewable energy sources? Funding for Community Colleges? But the photographers have jumped on board to working with the reporters, who have been finding subjects (people) who will be affected by the stimulus. They go out and spend time with the people, who share their stories, or photograph the problems that are in need of improvement. Keep checking out the package for upcoming stories about Funding for Police Departments, Foster Care, College Tuition and more. We’re also coming up with multimedia for the stories… whatever fits it best… some are maps, and others are videos.
