tarheel of the year
our man/woman of the year profile is one of the biggest open secrets in the newsroom.
this year i had the good fortune of being the photographer and i say it that way because our pick is an amazing person full circle. if there are any kinks in his armor i couldn't find 'em. and i think my IQ may have gone up a few points just by osmosis.
and ever since i saw matt mallams supercool overexposed photo a few months ago i've been keeping my eye open for any opportunity to honor his unique vision with the sincerest of flattery.
this is close. but it'll have to do for now. thanks matt.
