"Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter." — Ernest Hemingway Deputy US Marshal Cameron Welch and photographer Brian Finke went to high school together in Houston, and a mutual friend — also from high school, now Welch's brother-in- law — put them back in touch for this project. The Marshals Service is the oldest American federal law enforcement agency.
“It was founded in 1789, when George Washington was in office, and although obviously a lot's changed since 1789, the core mission is still what it was back then: the protection of our federal judiciary family and anything that falls under the federal court system, including federal protection of the judges through to the US attorneys. We also extradite and move prisoners around the country, run an asset-forfeiture division, and oversee the witness protection program. But probably the most recognized division of the Marshal Service would be our fugitive investigation division. That's what I work on. ” — Deputy US Marshall, Cameron Welch
