Rubber Face & Stiff Knee Problem

WHERE: Georgia, USA. WHAT: photo journalism. Thumbnail pops-up source page.

Sport Injury Clinic, Barry University, Miami © Thomas S. EnglandThomas S. England is a professional photo journalist based in Decatur, Georgia, USA. When you visit Thomas, you may choose from the following sections of his portfolio:

[1] Faces; [2] USA Places; [3] International; [4] Commerce; [5] Venice; [6] Latest updates; or [6] Sixties in Chicago.

From our own viewing, we selected this picture of an injured athlete, at the Barry Clinic in Miami, from the Commerce section. We have no way of knowing if the expression, or even the injury, was posed given that it does not come from a reportage section, but that guy must wish his knees were as flexible as his face. If you want to bring back a few memories, or not as the introduction explains, the Sixties section makes an interesting contrast with today's routinely full color pictures.

In reference to our comments yesterday, about defacing images to 'protect' them, we offer this thought to those who disagreed: if someone like Thomas, whose livelihood depends on selling his images, feels comfortable allowing some free access to his work, what is it you are trying to achieve? We are not looking at your pictures, but we are looking at Thomas's portfolio: that must tell you something.
