Spencer visited Ryan Neil of Bonsai Mirai in Orgeon for this story.
Ryan opened Bonsai Mirai in Oregon in 2010. Since then, he’s become one of the most respected bonsai artists of our day, racking up a discerning clientele and having his work exhibited at institutions like the Portland Art Museum.
There are landmarks, or goalposts or accomplishments in a photographer’s career that really mean so much. The cover of any magazine is fantastic but to have the cover of the NY Times Sunday Magazine is really a major high.
Yesterday Spencer’s first cover came out and we are so proud of him and his work on this and every story he does.
Thank you to Kathy Ryan and Jessica Dimson and Gail Bichler and everyone at the magazine.
A great story also by Farhad Manjoo – about the inside of Facebook and the challenges of social media’s impact on news and events.
Please take a look at Spencer’s website for the latest update of his work – updated and fantastic here
