The Boston Marathon Bombings

I woke up last Saturday pleasantly surprised to find my picture of Katherine Russell – the wife of Boston Marathon bombings suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev – on the front page of The New York Times. It goes to show why I never delete a photo. I didn’t know who she was at this point in the story when she appeared briefly at 410 Norfolk Street in Cambridge, the day after the FBI and others searched the house for explosives. It wasn’t until I photographed a mosque in Dorchester for a profile of her that I realized it was her that day. I Googled the mosque to learn more about it for a caption and saw an image of her image from that day in a photo from Newsday – I am in the background just after this picture was taken. Remember the photo of Monica Lewinsky kissing Bill Clonton. That photo has a similar story.
