Recording of the presentation from Thomas Cooper titled “Photojournalism of the East Troublesome Fire” given to the Focus Camera Club on February 10, 2021.
As many people were evacuating and leaving their homes, Thomas Cooper was eagerly driving in to document the East Troublesome (CO) Fire.
“It’s a passion. I couldn’t put it any other way. I just eat, sleep, breathe photography.”
Thomas shared with us incredible images of the devastation of the fire, along with the images and stories of the brave firefighters who fought the blaze.
