Bezos Center for Innovation Launch for Puget Sound Business Journal | Seattle editorial photographer

I had a fun assignment Saturday for the Puget Sound Business Journal to photograph the launch of the Bezos Center for Innovation Friday Oct. 11 at the Museum of History and Industry in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle! I wandered around and grabbed some features before the start of the on-stage interview. MOHAI has been completely revamped in its new location there, and the dedication to detail is impressive. The new exhibits that comprise the Center are fun and interactive — I only wish I could have had more time to really dig through some of them. Maybe next time…
