U.S. Attorney Generals

It's a privilege to have photographed two of our former U.S. Attorney Generals who always took a stand for equality.  I photographed Loretta Lynch a few weeks ago at the LGBT Bar Association of Greater NY's annual dinner.

The one of Eric Holder was taken at a 2014 Human Rights Campaign gala after my camera gear was sniffed over and approved of by Secret Service dogs...
