From the Archives: Brides and Bocce
Denver, CO These two images are among my favorites. The B & W photo is a group of Orthodox Jewish brides waiting at a hotel lobby for a multiple wedding. The photo was chosen for a postcard to promote the World Press Photo contest that year. The bocce photo I've always loved because of the body language of the gentleman on the right. It's a great feeling whenever you can capture such subtleties in an image. TECH INFO: The B & W photo was shot on 800 ASA Fuji film, the photojournalist's work horse back in the day. The bocce photo was probably shot with 200 ASA Fuji film. Both images were later digitally scanned. Hope you like these.
