I hadn’t heard of Stephen Crowley before noticing this NY Times report on the East Coast earthquake and his accompanying series of pictures of the Washington Monument. According to this showcase page also on the NYT:

Stephen Crowley has spent most of his career masquerading as a newspaper photographer while producing idiosyncratic projects that push the boundaries of photojournalism and reveal unvarnished truths behind his most frequent subject: Washington politics.

Some of his pictures like this are wonderful observations. Others both clever and funny. Tell me if you don’t give you a laugh.
