Cary Moon is running for Seattle mayor. The windy day made things tough on a Belltown rooftop but she was a trouper. Photographed her in Feb. 2015 for a Seattle Weekly story on her opposition to building the Highway 99 tunnel and work as an activist and urban designer.

Bertha tunnel project activist Cary Moon for Seattle Weekly | Seattle editorial photographer

I had a great assignment from Seattle Weekly earlier this month to photograph Cary Moon, an activist and urban designer who opposes continued development of the Bertha tunnel project. For those not living in Seattle, the waterfront highway a.k.a the Highway 99 Viaduct, is being torn down and replaced with a tunnel. The project has been plagued with problems and delays, some technical, some bureaucratic — all expensive. Check out the story for a much more thorough peek into why this divisive issue matters so much. We battled the wind on top of Pier 86 in downtown for a view of the skyline and then moved to under the viaduct for another view of the city.
