As the end of the political race quickly approaches, I am thinking back to all the wonderful new friends I have made and extraordinary people that I have met.
Sophie Macaluso is one of those extraordinary people. Sophie is a 17-year-old photographer with a focus on politics, people, lifestyle, and music in the Annapolis/Baltimore/DC area. Earlier this year, she created a photo shoot for women running for office in Maryland. We all met at the capitol, Annapolis.
Sophie says, “After realizing I had only photographed two female politicians as to 20+ men, I invited women from across Maryland for interviews and headshots at the Maryland State House on a hot, East Coast August day. As a high school student on summer break, this was the perfect opportunity to bring together women I look up to as politicians for a photoshoot/pow-wow/break from their constant campaigning.”
I’m proud to have been involved with this project featuring so many remarkable women, led by one outstanding young woman. Thank you Sophie. You did an fantastic job! See all Sophie’s great pictures and read more at this link.
