Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo always seems to find himself in the perfect spot.

Corbacho Daudinot sued under the Torture Victim Protection Act of 1991, which allows civil lawsuits in the United States against people who commit torture while acting in an official capacity for another country.

Alex Guerrero’s exaggerated enthusiasm couldn’t hide his genuine enthusiasm for the possibility.
