Four years ago, I was the photo intern at 225. My boss asked to schedule an early morning shoot with a man who owned a local business and who had an incredible life story. That morning was a beautiful one, and the photographs were lovely. I also enjoyed my time speaking to and spending time with Jairo Alvarez-Botero and his family.
Imagine my surprise, four years later, to receive an e-mail from my boss stating we needed a photograph the same man for a different kind of article. He had attached a photo from a previous shoot, and I was surprised to see it was one of my images from years before.
This time, I met him at his Baton Rouge home to learn he is not only a writer, but he is also a competitive cyclist and an avid gardener.
It was a delight photographing Jairo Alvarez-Botero again, and getting the opportunity to catch up with him and his wife.
