What is beauty? Something you can see? Henry Butlerís dispatch introduces us to a blind manís world of beauty and art. Butler does what all artists do: he commits a presentation of truth, and executes using intuition and intellect. He fearlessly shares his photos and his story, from New Orleans.

Bill Robles, courtroom sketch artist in the Michael Jackson case tells how he uses pen and marker to record the trial of the bizarre superstar.

Timothy Fadek supplemented his coverage of the Terri Schiavo vigil with portraits of the most persistent protesters.
