Photos by Nathan Lindstrom
Lindstrom was inspired to begin photography at a young age by his father, a serious amateur photographer. When he was a high school senior in Iowa he met the documentary photographer Danny Wilcox Frazier, who encouraged Lindstrom to pursue his hobby professionally. During college he began freelancing at the Chronicle and his work there landed him his first post-college job.
