Beyond the Broom: Mark Anderson

This is the completed final project for my Staff Photojournalism class.  I had grand ideas for a final project this semester but because of time constraints and a contacts falling through, I was forced to rush for story.  Luckily, I ran into Mark Anderson, a street sweeper for The District area of downtown Columbia.  He has turned his job into one big networking opportunity.  He knows just about every single person in Columbia.  I wanted to tell the story of how his job is much more that just sweeping the sidewalks.  Like he told me the first day I met him, “This job is less about sweeping and more about going around and messing with people.”
