Andy DelGiudice has one of those extremely easy going demeanors that makes for a perfect person to have a beer with.
He also has a very serious streak that if you’re lucky enough to uncover, will impress you. Andy is a supporter of truth, especially when it lacks a voice, and that’s why he partnered with fellow journalist Jeffrey Anderson to create District Dig.
February 21, 2014: Jeffrey Anderson released a feature in the Washington City Paper on Judge Anand K. Verma, uncovering a blighted D.C. Department of Employment services and exposing Verma’s contentious and unqualified time on the bench. The response to this expose was Judge Verma fleeing the city and the gradual recoup of millions of dollars in misappropriated Worker’s Compensation funds.
The piece inspired Andy to reach out to Jeffrey in a way that any inquisitive photojournalist would, taking interest in the victims of D.C.’s shortcomings and offering to collaborate with Jeff on the production of a series of images to accompany his story. Since that initial project, a continuing partnership led them to create their own outlet for their work, now known as District Dig.
