Inspired by photographs and immersed in the industry by a “news junkie mom,” Los Angeles Times' staff photographer Robert Gauthier uncovers what it's like to shoot at the Olympics (he's worked four), the switch from stills to video, and the personal and powerful side of visual journalism in his story, “Death and Dignity.”
