As a photographer, I look for images that hint of a story. Sometimes, I can achieve it with just one photo. Other times, it takes a collection of photos. From the national meeting in Boston, I think the diversity of chemists from around the world, all congregating for the love of chemistry, is the most powerful story to tell. Seeing their faces is worth more than a thousand words.
