Photojournalism

I just listening to this story on the New York Times website. They do a series called "One in 8 Million" about individual stories in New York.
They are always moving and this story about Ms. Smith, from Liberia and lives in Queens, opens her home up to friends to share
her traditional Liberian cooking. The money that she makes she splits and sends some to an elementary school in her home country and
the rest goes towards buying more food to continue cooking. I found it so interesting when she said she doesn't know how to cook for just
herself, since she came from a large family and it's part of the Liberian culture to share.

The photography by Todd Heisler included in this story is so beautiful and rich. Photojournalism at it's best. Enjoy!
