Took this photo of Andrea Seigel's daughter during a break at the 1978 North American Invitational at the Sussex hotel in Manhattan. In 1979 it won an Honorable mention in a Time Magazine contest called "the Spirit of Competition" There were about 20 of us out of 10,000. The other photos were all sports pix. The judge was George Plimpton. The tight crop was to remove her sisters' hand on her arm and other distracting elements. I'm still amazed it got anything. Tri-x with my Pentax KX and 50mm lens. Plimpton
write a nice little bit about the photo and why he picked it. This was in December of 1979. Ony Time mag subscribers got the ad section it was in.
