Kathleen O'Toole, Boston police commissioner
Boston, May 25: This was a press conference at police headquarters to release a study investigating the Victoria Snelgrove incident, the woman who was killed while celebrating outside Fenway Park. When you just have that person standing at the microphone, you say, "How can I capture something here that's not a person standing at the microphone?" ... I worked around the room, between my colleagues. ... I used the dark shapes of other camera people to highlight Police Commissioner Kathleen O'Toole. I want to say it's through someone's arm. ... What that did is highlight her, which was the point of the press conference, to hear the police commissioner who had to deal with this horrible event.
