I recently had the opportunity to photograph Amy Downs, an OKC bombing survivor, for a story in Oklahoma Living Magazine titled “Finding a New Normal”. Writer Dana Attocknie tells a moving story about Amy, who was in the Murray Building when the bomb went off and was trapped under a huge concrete slab for several hours before being rescued by firemen. Amy went on to change her life after the bombing, and now is an avid bicyclist and runner. I was able to photograph Amy at the OKC Bombing Memorial and in front of the Civic Center Music Hall in downtown Oklahoma City. She has an infectious personality and was quite fun to work with.
