Alma Mater

crowd cheering at football game

University of Pennsylvania boosters hailed the alma mater at a football game. I used a telephoto lens to compress the crowd, and picked the decisive moment to capture the enthusiasm.


The past and the present are closer than we often realize,so I’m going back into the archives to see what I saw long ago First up is this sampling of my documentary photography, a nostalgic collection of How Once We Looked. I’ve selected images that seem memorable, from the perspective of a life spent pursuing my passion. Here’s how the See-Saw collection now appears on Amazon:


“The historian will tell you what happened. The novelist will tell you what it felt like.” —-E. L. Doctorow

Such a pleasure, to capture feelings and not only the competition.  The play is over, but not the photography.  What a wonderful show of sportsmanship after a hard fought high school football game.


Was the game over?  Sure was, but staying alert as a photographer never ends.
