As the holidays rapidly approach, I was struck by this frame shot by William DeShazer of the Chicago Tribune for a story last Christmas Eve on children who had to spend the holidays in the hospital. As a parent, the thought of having a child in the PICU is awful...even more so if the stay were to fall over Christmas. The picture was posted today on 'The Image, Deconstructed', which examines the mental approach behind photographs and frequently shows how a situation unfolds for a photographer by including frames surrounding the final edit. I find the posts to be great reads for photographers and fans of wonderful photojournalism. To learn more about DeShazer and how Loretta Brenzek is doing now, check out 'The Image, Deconstructed'.
