My 30 Years as an Alaska News Photographer|
SNAP DECISIONS is an illustrated Alaska memoir of a raw but talented "street shooter" who chases ambulances in pursuit of sorrow and grief before maturing into a veteran photojournalist at the Anchorage Daily News, where he shares a Pulitzer Prize. In his three decades at the newspaper Jim Lavrakas covered the mighty and the meek in Alaska's biggest city and traveled across the state photographing an astonishing diversity of northern people, remote places, and wilderness lifestyles from the waning years of the oil boom to the rise of Sarah Palin.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jim Lavrakas was an Anchorage Daily News staff photographer for 30 years. He shared a Pulitzer Prize. He now works as a charter-boat operator in Homer, Alaska.
