Max’s memories

3dots

I’m not sure I’m qualified to call Max Becherer a friend anymore than I call anyone who I’ve met, admired and remembered as a friend, but today the New York Times published a fine and fitting five-year remembrance of the war and the death in Iraq. I was honored to meet Max when John and Val Becker hosted a show of his photographs in Red Wing. I was fortunate to have interviewed Max and some of his colleagues in writing the text for the show. The things I learned and saw through Max’s eyes have informed my understanding and feelings about the war in a way only his friends and viewers can.
