After raising two daughters in Takoma Park, Maryland, Robin Marantz Henig (“A Kaleidoscopic View") and her husband pulled up roots in 2002 and moved to Manhattan, where she indulges her love of theatre, art museums, and take-out Thai food. Since that time, she’s written her eighth book (Pandora’s Baby) and become a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine, writing about big topics like God, death, anxiety, and whether hunky humanoid robots make the best husbands.
Although Ivan Amato (“A Silver Lining”) thrives on writing about science and technology, he sometimes laments that, in learning more about the world to do his work, he becomes ever more aware of how much he does not know about the world. He has written hundreds of articles and several books. His latest book, Super Vision: A New View of Nature, is a celebration of the way science imagery makes the invisible visible.
A fallen biologist, Sarah Goforth (“Scratching the Surface”) traded the pipette for the pen in 2000. Since then, her work has appeared in The Scientist, Popular Science, and The Dallas Morning News, and online at The Why Files and Discovery.com. As manager of print and electronic publications at HHMI, she now works at the bustling intersection of science and digital media. Sarah lives in Annapolis, Maryland, with her husband and two dogs.
Peter Ross (“A Kaleidoscopic View”) works as a portrait photographer in New York City, making portraits for magazines, websites, and corporations, among others. He recently photographed the possessions of the late author William Burroughs: typewriter, handgun, shoes, quilt. This led him to ponder what personal possessions he would most like to be remembered for: his chainsaw, a collection of Odd Fellows pottery, and the world’s best coffee maker, the Chemex. His current project is photographing the 18 people who now live in apartments and homes where he once lived.
