"if your photos aren't good enough, you're not close enough" / by Maranie Staab

"if your photos aren't good enough, you're not close enough" 

taking these words to heart i crouched questionably close to juan, a rebel solider, during a battle simulation at the 2016 @conflictphotographyworkshops in andalusia, spain. it was an incredible week of training, simulations and mental and physical challenges; i am back in pittsburgh now and looking forward to putting what i have learned to use in 2017 and beyond.
