A Nation Challenged

This is Chan Chao. He is a natural mentor for photography students and the instructor for our Documentary Processes photo class at the Corcoran College. A couple days ago I learned I had a 2-page spread in New York Times: A Nation Challenged, a coffee table book published in 2002. (Now if I could just get a piece of the Pulitzer they got for coverage that year.) I took this cheap shot of Chan holding it up very briefly in class. You can see the $4.99 "bargain bin" price tag over the title. There is also a picture of me and my comrade Joseph Chenelly on page 171.
