  • I photographed couples obtaining marriage licenses at the Rowan County Courthouse in Morehead, KY after Kim Davis was arrested last week for The New York Times. Kim Davis was sent to jail after defying a federal court order to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. It was a pretty surreal experience to see one half of the property filled with people shouting vulgar things and reciting bible versus at the couples walking into the courthouse to get their licenses, while the other side cheered them on and presented them with flowers and signed poster boards with their congratulations. It opened my eyes to the fact that while so many people are absolutely overjoyed to be able to marry the ones they love, our country is still very much divided on this issue.
