On the Cover – July/Aug 17


Des Moines photographer Jami Milne captured a range of emotions during a shoot of Claudine Cheatem and the other four women who run Pyramid Theatre Company (to read the story, click here). “This image left me with so many emotions, which felt the right way to represent a theater company,” Milne says. “You can’t tell if Claudine is laughing or crying, if she’s hiding or resting, if she’s acting or experiencing true heartache. It sums up not only the shoot and her personality, but generations of women striving to find their footing in this industry and perhaps life itself—sometimes you feel like an actor in this play of life and sometimes you reach the point where you’re finally directing it all.”
