Ed Deasy

A truly gifted photographer and writer, who got the ball rolling just by answering his email. Ed was willing to scrounge, reprint and share his impressions of Emily with time he didn't really have to give up. You need to take a few moments to visit his website and say hello. Ed offers up some of the best slices of American life you never thought about, and gives exacting details about how he captured his print and other thoughtful insights.
