Meldon Moffitt – 42 from #Ferguson, MO
"Last night was a peaceful protest, but somehow these officers feel like they have to control what are doing peacefully and they moved in on us. They arrested me, put me to the ground and put these wire handcuffs on me. They took me to the command center up by the Target and let me sit in the van for at least two hours with some other guys that they arrested. I got out by about 4 this morning. I haven’t been home, I haven’t had a wink of sleep and I am not going anywhere. I am going to be here until I hear that word, ‘Guilty’."
Part of the project that I shot in Ferguson, MO is online now over at Bloomberg Businessweek. Take a look at it here: http://images.businessweek.com/photos/2014-08-22/from-the-streets-of-ferguson-portraits-of-defiance#slide1
Today, at the new studio.
Moved into a new studio last week. It has super nice natural light all day. Yum.
This album has been my regular airplane jam for the last two months. So good.

“A refusal to muck up the Juggalo experience — either by sarcasm or sociology — is the ultimate triumph of photographer Daniel Cronin’s The Gathering of the Juggalos (Prestel, 2013). Cronin’s project intimately captures a much-maligned group without being scopophilic, conveying a perspective that is sincere without being saccharine. Rather than tacking too far in either direction — risking neither callous irony nor National Geographic condescension — the photo book is a subtle study of the characters who make up the Gathering of the Juggalos, people whose marginal status in society is momentarily redeemed in a rural universe of their own creation.”-Hyperallergic
do it. I did a while back and didn’t regret it at all.
I’ve been photographing Nick since I picked up a camera 7 years ago. He’s gotten progressively weirder but he’s always been a willing subject and a good friend.
Hidden Islam on Lightbox. Photos by Nicolo Degiorgis. Really beautiful and interesting work.
