The 10th Anniversary Black & White Party in photos

For the Pratt Contemporaries’ 10th Annual Black and White Party, I shot a mix of black-and-white film and digital to capture the spirit of the original Studio 54, the theme of this year’s black-tie fundraiser. The disco-themed ball, held at The Assembly Room, as the central branch of the library undergoes extensive renovation, raised $235,000 for youth programs at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, according to the philanthropic organization.

What do Govs. Larry Hogan, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire and Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania have in common, professionally speaking? Look to their approval ratings and polling numbers, and you’ll find they’ve successfully navigated highly partisan political climes—and, in Hogan’s case, even overcame a two-to-one disadvantage in voters’ party affiliation—to achieve strong support in their home states. They also were each handily re-elected to a second term this past November.
