› A year in Times Free Press pho­tog­ra­phy,

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - FRONT PAGE -

2017 was a year of tran­si­tion for the photo staff at the Chat­tanooga Times Free Press. In May, we said a sad good­bye to long­time shoot­ers An­gela Lewis Fos­ter and Dan Henry. We were able to wel­come back two for­mer in­terns, Erin Smith and Cody Sch­melter. Smith com­ing to us from the Gainesville (Ga.) Times and Sch­melter from the Jack­son (Tenn.) Sun. Through all the ups and downs, the staff put to­gether an im­pres­sive body of work, and we hope you en­joy this se­lec­tion.
