New York City photographer 1 Jacob Blickenstaff ("They Came, They Saw, They Occupied") spent most of the fall at Zuccotti Park.
Staff reporter 2 Josh Harkinson returned to his home state of Texas to write about fracking pioneer turned GOP financier Trevor Rees-Jones ("Rigged"). One of the story's photos was taken by John Loomis, a regular contributor to ESPN the Magazine.
