Portrait of Author Ken Ballen in his Study

When Ken Ballen called me, he said that he needed a portrait for a book that he wrote on Terrorism. He told me a little about the background and I was glad that he invited me into his house to take the pictures, since that's where he unwinds from dealing with terrorism and organized crime. The title of the book is Terrorists in Love and can be pre-ordered from Amazon (click here) (Launch Date: October 07, 2011). The book itself is an interesting read because it shows radicals and terrorists from a more personal side and nothing is as black and white as the media portrays it.

This is my favorite picture of Ken, but the publisher chose a different one that you can see here.
