Project Portrait: Day 54
Day 54 of Project Portrait. Next up we have Ben Rooney, who is the co-founder of Informilo – a technology website. He was previously the technology editor for the Wall Street Journal in Europe. I had the pleasure of spending four days with him in Kazakhstan attempting to make sense of the politics, the bureaucracy and above all, the startups that have chosen to call this vast country home. In between all of that we had a chance to share our experiences in journalism and how, on several occasions we’ve both considered leaving. Strangely, we both keep getting pulled back in. This image was shot in the Hilton hotel in Astana, the strange Kazakh capital.
