A couple of years ago I was privledged to spend two days with John when we were both giving lectures at a Calumet show in Chicago. John gave a lecture about making the photographs for Places of Power and it seems he had good access at every location. I'm sure that John gave a lot of though to his portrayal of those places and I think the images reflect that. He is a thinking caring man and I don't think he would change much in the light of the recent disaster.
