Madoff

This image of Ruth Madoff was in a New York Times article about her. The photo really caught my attention, because it captures a side of the story one never thinks about. It touches on something very human, and speaks of a truth we don't really want to face-- that in the end, we may have to answer to our past choices. Even scarier is the thought that we may be seen and remembered only for a failure while the rest of us as a whole is forgotten. Whether one wants to demonize her or pity her, the photograph itself is powerful.
