Lorraine Motel Memphis

Memphis (USA) 08/10 commissioned by Vanity Fair magazine.

On April 4 1968 Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Shot dead on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel at 450 Mulberry Street, now the National Civil Rights Museum.

I didn’t expect it but standing right there on that balcony really got to me, and the whole museum experience was very moving. I’m glad I ¬†got this assignment, it’s one of those that sticks with me.
