Chris: “There were fire engines and police and smoke and everything. I had my Nikon on my back. But I just couldn't bring myself to get it out and shoot. It felt like such an invasion of privacy to photograph the house on fire that I paid attention to the sinking feeling in my stomach as I imagined these people's reaction to getting home to a burned out shell that used to be their refuge.”
