In this issue, she captures the spirited quest of Andrew Crawford ’15 for a Big Law partnership and the soulful mastery of international war crimes judge and prosecutor Phillip Weiner ’80. “Young Crawford’s lively self-discovery and Weiner’s sage intensity bookend each other beautifully,” she says. “What a privilege to write their stories.”
Photographer Smith, an editorial illustrator and photographer based in Boston, reflected on his connection to cover subject Phillip Weiner ’80: “When I was a cub newspaper photographer in New Bedford, Massachusetts, I sometimes photographed stories with national exposure. What I didn’t know until recently was that Phil Weiner and I were working the same beat at the same time, he as an attorney involved in cases I photographed. The opportunity to finally meet and photograph him was a pleasure.”
