It’s taken awhile to get past the sting of losing one of my favorite gigs. When VIP Wichita Magazine’s parent company pulled the plug on us, it blindsided me and I spent a few days touring the local watering holes with my editor in a mix of reminiscence and mourning the loss of a publication he built from the ground up.
Janelle King is a staple of all things Wichita. President of the Douglas Design District, owner of The Workroom, and one of the pioneers of reigniting civic pride here where the rivers meet. Photographing her for VIP Wichita Magazine was an honor – getting to know her while doing so is why I love my work.
