Kansas City Star photojournalist Keith Myers has had more than 900 photos published in the print edition of The Kansas City Star since the beginning of 2015. The number of photos he had published on kansascity.com is probably close to triple that. Myers gets around. And he makes lots of photos. Consider that he has been making photos for The Star or its long-gone sister paper The Kansas City Times for more than thirty years and you can only imagine how many photos he’s shot.
As if he wasn’t busy enough, the photo editors of The Kansas City Star gave Myers one more assignment to complete before the end of the year. Out of those thousands of images he has shot for the hundreds of assignments he has been on over the past year we asked him to pick his five favorites and tell us why he selected them. Someday we’ll see if he can pick just five out of more than thirty years of work.
