New Portraits of Janet Yellen

In early October, The New York Times assigned me to photograph Janet Yellen, Vice-Chairwoman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve at the Marriner S. Eccles Federal Reserve Board Building in Washington, DC.

 

I looked forward to meeting Ms. Yellen, who was nominated by President Obama to be the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve system in its 100-year history, and in turn, she was enthusiastic, kind and seemed to enjoy our photo shoot.

Her staff, Eric Kollig and Michelle A. Smith, was incredibly supportive and equally enthusiastic as lights were set up, furniture moved, and the woman of the hour was ushered around the atrium for numerous poses and portraits.

My thanks to Vice Chairwoman Janet L. Yellen, her staff, my assistant Joe Eddins and, of course, The New York Times for this memorable assignment.
