Dan Burke

Dan Burke, May 2014.
I met Dan Burke after photographing the College of Saint Mary Magdalen's graduation in May. He gave the commencement speech, and I had the good fortune of dining with him and a few others from the college afterwards. In addition to his work as Executive Director of the National Catholic Register and founder of the Avila Institute, he is an author and speaker on Catholic spirituality.

I asked to make his portrait, and we found a quiet space in the office of the president (who's also a good friend). We spent more time discussing art, aesthetics, and films than photographing, but we fit in a few portraits.
