Through the Eyes of a Slave

This was one of several shots I took of Jonathon Wood, who portrays the character actor Christopher Sheels at Mount Vernon Estate. His dignity and bearing shine in this photograph. It was fascinating to interview him because he stays in character and really gives you a full picture of what life was like for an enslaved person in early America.
