Summer at Saratoga
For several summers I have had the opportunity to work on a television production team supporting the live broadcast of several races at Saratoga Race Track in Saratoga, NY. This job gives me great access to many parts of the track and the grounds. During my day to day duties I carry two cameras loaded with black and white film. One is a Holga and the other is a Mamiya 6.
For this continuing work in progress, my intention is to show a different perspective of horse racing. One that looks beyond the racing action, party scene and big hats prominent in most coverage of horse racing. With my privileged access I am attempting to portray the culture of racing in its myriad forms.
