Peace and Riot

A photo essay.

A firework explosion is loud and quick.

But a photo of a firework explosion can be quiet and still, like a nebula so distant that its furor looks fixed.

A photo of a firework explosion can also overcome the static nature of the medium, asserting motion and force.

If you caught the fireworks last night over East Rock, consider this a chance to slow them to a halt; and if you missed them, consider this a chance to experience the action.

Turning down a dream editing job right out of college, Dan instead went into marketing and media sales to better cover the rent. Stints at Spin Magazine and Yahoo! followed. But he kept scratching that writing-and-editing itch—first on the side, then at a couple of startups. Dan is now scratching it as Daily Nutmeg's editor.
