Marcelas Owens

Yesterday I had the opportunity to photograph Marcelas Owens. A healthcare activist since the age of 10, he is now a page for Washington State Senator Pramila Jayapal. After speaking for more than a year after the death of his mother, Marcelas stood next to President Obama when he signed the Affordable Care Act.
