    I assisted photographer Kathryn Mayo for 6 months while she created the "Selma Portrait Project". Ms. Mayo photographed a cross-section of Selma residents, capturing over 60 wet plate collodion portraits. One of the portraits she made was of the Rev. F.D. Reese, one of the "Courageous Eight". Meeting Rev. Reese and the many beautiful people of Selma was a life-changing experience for me. This "behind the scenes" image I made encapsulates the trip that changed my life.

    Wow! Thank you so much for sharing this powerful photo with our community, Douglas. It must have been incredibly humbling to meet someone who played such an important part in the voting rights movement. I like how in this frame you can see a slight smile on his face as Kathryn is setting up the shot.
