In March, I was one of two photographers documenting Success Academy’s “Slam the Exam” pep rally at Radio City Music Hall. I covered the balcony while my colleague worked in the orchestra. The rally, attended by more than 3,500 students, was meant to pump kids up so they will score well on state tests.
