"Power to the People" / Smiley Pete Publishing, September 2015

"Four years in the making, Lexington Community Radio’s WLXL 95.7 FM is set to debut on local airwaves this month" - and I was able to document the finishing touches. I often think about just that- how magazines highlight the doings of others just as they are about to be done. As a photographer, it is so wild to show up and photograph something that had previously required so much ground work to make possible. In this case, the finishing touches included paintbrushes. I felt lucky to document the process of talented painter John Lackey, the mural artist for the exterior walls of the sound booths. I made three visits to the station, though the job could have been done in one. It was so exciting- I wanted to see more- and I wanted you to see more, too.
