“This is Water,” the title of David Foster Wallace’s 2005 commencement speech at Kenyon College
Talmadge: This was one of the early submissions and the first one that I got really excited about. There were originally two photos, Sam and his girlfriend. They both had matching tattoos. But she got a little shy about being in the book. We had a couple of people who just wanted their first initial. Others who wanted to be anonymous. This came from Australia. The guy who did the tattoos was a Maori cop. And the photo’s just great. I love the posed nature of it.
