Amanda Crawford is a freelance journalist and good friend of mine that I had the pleasure of photographing for her new blog www.CrawfordonDrugs.com. Amanda’s blog focuses on covering the drug war in Arizona and the US-Mexican border. For the shoot we headed to downtown Phoenix for a grungy urban look to the pictures. Amanda and I have also worked together on a piece for Phoenix Magazine about medical marijuana and the Tucson Hemp Clinic which ran earlier this spring, click here to see photos from the clinic. Amanda is a 2010 Soros Justice Fellow with the Open Society Institute.
