Assignment: Police shooting two years later

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Annie Esposito recounts how her son Jason was shot and killed by police in 2018, at a news conference in Riverton on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020.

I’m sitting here thinking that I need to put something down under this photograph of Annie. I’ll never forget the moment, listening to her tell the story from a few feet away. So many mothers I have photographed. Posting this photo is not about showing off any photographic skills I brought to Riverton. What needs to be acknowledged is Annie’s sacrifice to retell her story and the pain she feels two years later. How can we best help each other heal from tragedy?
