Fifty-Nine years of Photojournalism by Chick , fine art Photography by Yvonne , and a bit of fun. Licensing Available

Working in Washington also means coverage of  Capitol Hill and these photos were made between 1968 and 2001. The black and white images are from my AP years and the color from US News & World Report.  The AP assigned one photographer to cover the Senate side of the Capitol and one to the House of Representatives. In 1978 the AP’s long time Senate photographer Henry Griffith had to retire unexpectedly due to a disability and I volunteered to take his place temporarily and so became the AP’s Senate Photographer from that point until 1981 when I moved over to U.S News, where we also covered the major stories on the Hill.
