“The image is actually a frame grab from a video my company, Passenger, was producing for a joint project with OTA and the South Dakota Community Foundation. The aim of the project was to showcase a wide range of stories of philanthropy across the state. This particular story was about a young man, Ty Eschenbaum, who after battling cancer, started a college scholarship fund for other young survivors of the disease. The image is of his father on their cattle farm outside of Brookings as a thunderstorm was starting to roll in.”
