"Photojournalism News: What drew you to photojournalism?
David Butow: I got interested in photography when I was about 12 years old. My dad was a good amateur photographer who would develop and print his own pictures and I was inspired in part by looking through photo magazines that he kept. In high school I got interested in current events and then I learned you could combine the two. The idea of seeing historical events first hand, and taking pictures of them seemed like an exciting job. It hasn't disappointed."
David Butow's photographs were featured in the exhibition "Present Tense" this summer at Monroe Gallery of Photography.
