Jenna Wortham

Editorial Portraits for Pi.co

Story by Wesley Verhoeve May 8th, 2015

A morning With Jenna

Jenna Wortham is a staff writer for The New York Times Magazine. The kind of writer that has a unique and identifiable perspective. While I read her work, I hear Jenna’s unmistakably enthusiastic, driven and curious voice in my head, pursuing new knowledge, and sharing it with the reader in an effortless way. Jenna doesn’t mess around.

A little while ago, we spent a chilly morning in Clinton Hill, shooting a few portraits to accompany an interview she did with writer Om Malik for his outlet Pico. Below are some of the shots that made the article, a few additional outtakes, and some mobile shots that were posted to Instagram. Read the article itself here.
