The photography of Amanda Rivkin

Recently due to some very strange circumstances, I was connected with the lovely Amanda Rivkin, a brilliant Chicago Photojournalists who covered the Obama's election night and the final days of the Blagojevich trials. Her photographs are powerfully striking, rich and iconic. Miss Rivkin is a young and true talent. For me, it has been a treat to get to know such an interesting and talented woman.
