Newspapers I kept

Posted in news by bermanphotos on September 11, 2011

I am used to saving good tearsheets, copies of my pictures printed in magazines and newspapers. But generally, if I don’t have a photo in it, publications hit the recycle bin after the final page.

That’s not the case for a select group of newspapers.

They have dates I remember.

9/11/2001

11/5/2008

3/17/2009

These are dates that impacted me, moved me and changed me. They changed the lives of many friends here in the Northwest photojournalism community. And so these are the newspapers I kept. They traveled with me when I moved. They sit on top of my pile of tearsheets.

And for better or for worse, I wanted to hold onto them — not for any collectibility nonsense — but for a much more selfish purpose. I wanted to be able to hold onto what I felt that day. These will not see the recycling bin.
