Mitchell Katine for the Houston Chronicle

Mitchell Katine is a lawyer in Houston deeply involved in advocating for people with the HIV/AIDS virus and people in the LGBT community and has been for over 30 years. For my fellow political scientists who undoubtedly had to take a civil rights and liberties class in college, he also worked on the landmark case Lawrence v. Texas that he and the plaintiffs eventually won at the Supreme Court. These are a few images I shot as part of a story for the Houston Chronicle highlighting him as a hero in Houston.

Sidenote: As I toured Katine's office scouting for shooting locations, I ran into a kid (now a grown ass attorney) whom I went to Heflin Elementary with. I guess stuff like that'll happen when you move back to your hometown.
