Everyone has their own opinions when it comes to marijuana and the effects it has on society. Lynn Johnson wanted to uncover the truths behind medical marijuana. She found a way capture the plant past the physical look of marijuana. She really ingrained herself into the lives of these children who need to take marijuana for their problems. Johnson wanted to go past the stigma of marijuana and show how helpful it is for some. She captured marijuana’s complexities and simplicities. This is probably my favorite photo story at the present time because Johnson was able to get to the core of the plant.
This makes me want to really delve into a complex story, however, I don’t really have six months to work on something. This story gives me hope that complex stories can be told, it just requires a lot of thinking and a creative mind. It also makes me realize that you can do a story on a thing, not necessarily people. This opens up my mind to a lot more possibilities and really gets me excited to really begin creating stories.
