“I wasn’t really a big fan of government when I was working as a freelancer, I was very skeptical, but when I stepped in I saw the incredible amount of work…and it was insane, and it was overwhelming…these people are doing so much work and sacrificing everything.” Edwin Torres is the Deputy Digital Director for Governor Murphy’s Office in New Jersey. Before that he was a staff photographer for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and before that, Edwin was a freelance photojournalist.
