My name is Clay Lomneth, I am a fourth-year journalism student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I have shot for the Reno Gazette-Journal (let's hear it for the Reno-ites), the Daily Nebraskan, the Lincoln Journal Star, various UNL journalism things and a student-run picture agency called Front Page Images.
Right now, I am on a two-month trip across Nebraska, documenting how Nebraskans live during the recession. (see: http://unlphotojournalism.blogspot.com/) This image was shot at a pig farm I photographed for a while.
Being on this trip reminds me what my true love is: Documentary Photojournalism. Not daily newspaper work, though that's great too. It's the spending time with people and hearing stories and showing people images they need to see. That's what I love.
