Tom Loucks’ in the Backyard

In the Backyard is a new photo column in the Daily Tribune (Wisconsin Rapids) by Chief Photographer Tom Loucks.
The photo column is about a fresh view of everyday life in our community.
I came up with the name “in the Backyard” because there are so many stories to be told right in our own community without traveling. I believe that is what local photojournalism is about, telling peoples stories through still pictures and video.
I also decided to write a short story about the subject, by including several of their quotes, so they can express themselves in their own words.
The column runs once a week on Monday’s on our local community page.
I also have included a multi-media presentation on our website on each column. Some of the columns maybe video and some of the columns maybe using Soundslides with audio.
Here is a PDF of the first photo column, which began in October of this year.
