On assignment for the New York Times.
Five days ago I received a phone call by the photo editor for the New York Times. He asked me if I could make myself available for an assignment which would start early in the morning the following day. Without hesitation I said yes, booked flights to Auckland, and put this project into reality. I met the writer, Charlotte Graham, who I worked with on the assignment, and who I think is a wonderful and talented person. Today the article got published in the New York Times, using my photographs.
