|Dan Burke, May 2014.|
I met Dan Burke after photographing the College of Saint Mary Magdalen
's graduation in May. He gave the commencement speech, and I had the good fortune of dining with him and a few others from the college afterwards. In addition to his work as Executive Director of the National Catholic Register
and founder of the Avila Institute
, he is an author
and speaker on Catholic spirituality.
I asked to make his portrait, and we found a quiet space in the office of the president (who's also a good friend). We spent more time discussing art, aesthetics, and films than photographing, but we fit in a few portraits.
