Local Photographer's Work On Death Row Featured In News

Local freelance photographer Justin Clemons was hired by Marie Claire UK to photograph two men on Texas' Death Row. (Note: "Within a month of the shoot, both inmates were dead.")

The current issue of Photo District News asks Clemons how he shot the assignment. Read about Clemons' lighting as he explains how he had to think quickly and problem solve in a tense situation!

I have photographed on Death Row and it's a strange, poorly lit space. Nice work, Justin.
