Photo Journal: Heroin In Denver

In the second installment of NPPA’s new feature Photo Journal, renowned photography editor Jim Colton takes a look at Heroin In Denver, a three-part series recently published in The Denver Post that documents the re-emergence of heroin in the Colorado city, and how it’s become the drug of choice for many 20-somethings. 

Photographed in stills and video by staff photographer Joe Amon, the series was published in print and on the Post’s Web site. Assistant managing editor Tim Rasmussen gave Colton a peek behind the curtain showing how the series was accomplished.
