Portrait Views with those Confronting Addiction

Posted in Editorial, Portrait by harkinsphoto on October 24, 2016


Portrait views for the article “The Front Lines of Addiction” by writer Will Cortney for Merrimack Valley Magazine.

I started the shoot that day with Marian Ryan Middlesex County District Attorney at her offices in Woburn MA.

She believes we need to get to people before they get addicted and has convened her own opioid task force.

On the recovery end I met with Keriann near her home at the banks of Horn Pond in Woburn.

Keriann works at Megan’s House a home in Lowell that helps women transition out of substance abuse.

Later that day I met with Kara in Nashua NH and her family, she says ” Help is out there and it’s worth it” “Your life is worth it”.

Look for more in the latest issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine Sept/Oct 2016.
