Slaby recently photographed Patagonia Sportswear founder Yvon Chouinard for U.S. News & World Report’s Best Leaders issue. Chouinard, an avid climber and outdoorsman, describes himself as a natural innovator and a reluctant businessman.  Patagonia’s business model is unique in that it encourages responsible growth and has a built in system that returns 1% of its net sales to environmental causes.  The company also pays employees to work full-time on environmental issues.

You can view more photographs and read more about the process on Slaby’s blog, here.

Slaby for The Wall Street Journal

Slaby recently photographed the Shearn family for The Wall Street Journal.  The Shearns purchased their seven bedroom home in Cherry Hills Village, an exclusive, gated suburb of Denver, for more than $900,000 below it’s original list price. The house sold for slightly less than 1.3 million dollars as a short sale, a pre-foreclosure type of transaction that allows the bank and the troubled seller to move the property before repossession. The bank takes the proceeds of the sale, usually less than the outstanding balance on the property, in order to avoid the expense and burden of foreclosure proceedings.

Slaby recently photographed a young Colorado girl who is one of tens of thousands of immigrant-children who stand to be positively impacted by the passage of the federal DREAM Act this fall. The Act comes before both chambers of Congress and essentially affords children of ‘good moral character’ who have been in the United States for more than five years and who have graduated from an American high school a path towards permanent residency. Their residency hinges on completion of either college education or military service.

For immigrants with the academic credentials to attend college, the DREAM Act affords them the opportunity for in-state tuition as well as federal student loans (two things currently unavailable under federal law).

The Act was also part of the focus of Luceo’s recent group project, Still Hoping, available here: www.stillhoping.com

Lutheran Pastor Don Marxhausen, top, and Evangelical Pastor George Kirsten, bottom, for Newsweek.  Both pastors were involved in the fallout after the Columbine shootings.  Marxhausen performed the funeral for shooter Dylan Klebold and spoke on behalf of the Klebold family, a move which would see him pushed from his church.  Kirsten presided over the funeral of Cassie Bernall, one of the Columbine victims who, according to rumors during the shooting, was killed after professing her belief in God; the rumor later proved false though the metaphorical aspect of the story has continued to inspire evangelicals.  Kirsten, a Vietnam pilot who survived a helicopter crash as well as a devastating explosion that claimed the lives of many of his comrades, was diagnosed with PTSD following the shootings.  Read more here.
