Multiple Exposures

Prior to starting this blog, I posted this photo on my Facebook photography page, but I was reminded of it yesterday when a friend showed me a project she was working on that involved compositing a number of images of another friend into a single image. My camera has the capability of shooting digital multiple exposures and it makes the process fairly easy!

This image was produced for ESPN for a project that I was hired for to shoot some still photos of 2 remarkable young men, Dartanyon Crockett and Leroy Sutton.  They were both high school wrestlers but Dartanyon is legally blind and Leroy is a double leg amputee.  Dartanyon carried Leroy on his back to wrestling matches and together they were a force to be reckoned with for those competing against Cleveland’s Lincoln West High School.  Approximately 24 of my photos were used in the ESPN “Outside the Lines” segment entitled “Carry On” and a text piece that went along with it.  This image unfortunately was not used, but it’s one of my favorites!

If you haven’t seen this inspiring story, the text version can be found at:

The ESPN “Carry On” segment was nominated for an Emmy Award.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
