Friendship Baptist for The New York Times-Part One

Friendship Baptist

It’s always wonderful when an editor gives you the green light to photograph a project you’ve pitched; When they take a chance on your vision¬† and trust that you will tell the complete story (or at least they hope you will). Such was the case recently when I photographed the last days of Friendship Baptist Church at its historic location at the corner of Atlanta’s Mitchell Street and Northside Drive. Above:¬†Sula Burr, a Friendship Baptist visitor, arrived a couple hours early to ensure she had a seat for the final service on May 25, 2014.
