2010 MacArthur Fellow

Today, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation announced the 23 winners of the annual "Genius Award," including Annette Gordon-Reed, a writer and historian based in New York City. Last week, Ash and I had the pleasure of photographing Gordon-Reed in the New York City Public library, a place in which she says she's spent the last twelve years. Gordon-Reed won a Pulitzer Prize in 2009 for her book on Thomas Jefferson's slave family, The Hemingses of Monticello. In addition to her writing, Gordon-Reed teaches history and law at Harvard.
