I love history. I love it enough that I spent my college years reading it, writing about it, and listening to other history lovers talk about it. History comes in all stripes: Interested in the history of hip hop or rock? Great! As for me, my great loves are oral history and the history of photography. Some of my favorite afternoons were spent listening to my great-aunt's stories about her childhood and our loved ones. But, I can talk your ear off about photograpy's role in social causes.
