Ray Lustig has worked as a news photographer since 1963, first with the Fargo (N.D.) Forum, and then with the Milwaukee Journal and Sentinel and the Washington Star. He joined The Post when the Star's doors closed in 1981 and he has been covering Capitol Hill full-time since 1989. "One of the best parts of covering the Hill is making on-the-spot news decisions," says Lustig, "There's great theater on the Hill, but you try not to get suckered into that." Lustig's pictures have also appeared in Life, Time, Newsweek, People and National Geographic. His motor sports photography has appeared in Automobile, Stock Car Racing, Open Wheel, Cycle and Cycle World magazines. He has also illustrated "Super Speedway," Rich Benyo's book on Nascar racing. Born in St. Paul, Minn., Lustig now lives in Washington, D.C., with his four cats: Rosco, Annie, Baby Harry and Flash.
