Conan O’Brien receiving last-minute maintenance of his trademark high-rise coiffure as Jeff Ross, one of the executive producers of Late Night with Conan O’Brien, looks on. After 16 years in New York City, O’Brien made the ill-fated journey west to take over The Tonight Show in California. Gillian Laub‘s photographic diary “Heeeere’s Conan” follows O’Brien on February 20, 2009, on the last day of taping the show in New York City.
More images from Laub and other winners can be seen in the PDN Photo Annual 2010 winners gallery.
