I've been a huge fan of Ken Burns' work for years, so I was excited to be contacted by the National Endowment for The Humanities to shoot his portrait for their newest issue of Humanities Magazine. Burns was honored for his decades of award winning historical documentary film making and named the Endowment's 2016 Jefferson Lecturer. His lecture was delivered on May 9th at the Kennedy Center, you can watch his thoughtful lecture here.

Here's the cover of the magazine:
