Wielding a camera can be dangerous. When I work in conflict zones, I feel a cautionary dread. That anxiety sometimes spills over when I shoot in "safe" places, too, because my nervous system doesn't know the difference.

For more about the history of Drag Ball in Vermont, read the 2015 story and watch a slideshow depicting 20 years of this legendary Vermont party.
