Wandering photographer Thurs.,June 2.1977 CREELEY(Colo.)THlBUjve._ by Paul Moloney The annual Colorado Special Olympics was festive, one ot the most worthwhile events to be held in Greeley. UNC's Jackson Field last Saturday teemed with activity from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nearly 1,800 persons participated in the gala event. There were races, Softball throws, frisbee contests high and long jumping events and many other activities. Basketball was played at Butler- Hancock Hall, and other participants swam. Indeed, Greeley was a busy place. I spared no film in photographing the many activities because the participants thoroughly enjoyed their activities. It 'was a questions. memorable occasion. The Saturday activities opened at 9 a.m. with a parade of the' participants. Balloons were launched, and it was shades of Montreal when Robert Romero of Denver lit the Olympic torch above the Jackson Field press box. The wetither was cool Saturday morning, but this didn't daunt the participants. In fact the youngsters seemed to run faster and jump farther because of it. Clown Ronald McDonald and Denver Bronco football star Lyle Alzado were kept busy presenting medals, singing autographs, shaking hands and answering a multitude of A feature of the day was a race between Ronald McDonald and UNC students dressed as clowns. Public address announcer Ken Grafft promoted the race throughout the day, and no one left until It was run about 2:30 p.m. McDonald had to race only about 50yards, while the clowns were to run 200 yards. At the gun, Ronald McDonald dashed backward toward the finish line, and the clowns took short cuts across the infield. However, Ronald beat the fastest clown, Bo the Irish setter dog, to the finish. Youngsters swarmed around McDonald to congratulate him. During the morning parade,many participants waved to McDonald who wu Muted in the stands. One youngster, Frankle Romero of Adams County, itopped and greeted McDonald with a big smile and his thumbs In the air. gave me one of my favorite photographs from the day's activities. I relied primarily on my wide-angle lenses because I could include several persons in the picture and I could work close to the action. However, I occasionally employed telephoto lenses. It was the type of an event which enables a photographer to obtain the full range of photojournalism. Czech photographer Sudek exhibit opens By IRVING DESFOR There is a hidden story behind the peaceful, poetic images of a great Czech photographer, Josef Sudek, whose retrospective exhibition opened recently at New York City's International Center of Photography (ICP). Sudek was a shy, humble man who persevered with photography for 60 years despite the handicap of having only one arm. He lived in monk-like simplicity in frugal, crowded rooms in the old quarter of Prague and was widely known and respected in Czechoslovakia as a photographer of city scenes and the Bohemian countryside. He lived long enough to enjoy the honor of an official retrospective exhibition in Prague to celebrate his 80th birthday in the spring of 1976. The exhibition was organized and directed by his good friend, Anna Farova, photography curator for the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague. Sudek died in September 1976. The official exhibition, planned and prepared by Anna' Farova, was scheduled for international circulation this spring, starting with installation under her supervision at the ICP in New York. Unfortunately, in the meantime, Anna Farova became a victim of'Iron curtain" ideology when she tried to exercise the elementary right of free expression. Anna Farova was one of 600 writers, artists and educators who signed "Charter 77," a petition to the government of Czechoslovakia appealing for human rights. She was dismissed from her museum job and her passport was revoked. As director of the Prague museum's photography projects for seven years, and as a teacher, writer and scholar, Anna had promoted Czechoslovakian photography around the world and commanded international respect.

Thirty world-famous photographers, museum directors, curators and historians sent a petition to the Chechoslovakian government requesting her reinstatement. The plea was denied. Under the circumstances, Cornell Capa, director of ICP, would not accept the official Czech Sudek Exhibition by sacrificing Anna Farova. It would be an abridgment of photography's role as a universal language of free expression. He sought a replacement instead and was extremely fortunate in finding close friends of Sudek in New York and other collectors of his original prints. They were-able to produce an impressive "Josef Sudek Retrospective: 1896 - 1976" from their own private collections. Among the chief contributors were Soaja Bullaty and her husband, Angelo Lomeo, while' other prints came from Dr. Joseph Brumlik, Michael Edelson, Regina Fiorita and Grace M. Mayer. · ._ Greetings lor Ronald McDonald Spring renews photographic enthusiasm Dy IRVING DESFOR . AP Newsffiturcs Photography blossoms in spring along with the flowers and the world takes on a fresh image, The early warmth of the new season found me recently enjoying the sunshine in a lounge chair absorbing the pictures and ideas of a couple of photographic magazines. Appropriately enough, I started with the spring 1977 issue of Popular Photography's "In vitation to Photography." It's a learning issue and offers much practical help to beginning photographers who wish to become ' more knowledgeable. Harvey Fondiller leads off with answers to a batch of typical questions most often asked by students. Example What can I learn from photography? "How to see," he replies. "You learn the significance of fractioned seconds, the uses of space, the infinite variations of form. And how to respond to the rising sun -- since light makes the picture, each day brings new challenges for a photographer." Harvey Shaman discusses light and lighting to explain its significance toward better pictures. It isn't a matter of having a lot of lighting equipment; it is a matter of seeing, understanding and controlling light. In any picture situation, you must study the five basic characteristics of light: its direction, intensity, contrast, color and modifying elements. The direction of light must be considered from the camera position selected. For instance, a subject in sidelight could 'be a subject in backlight if the camera angle were chaneerl Intensity of light affects shutter speed and lens openings and can dictate what type of picture you make. Intensity can be measured by a light meter but it would be wise for a photographer to learn to judge light intensity by estimating exposure before using a meter. That knowledge can come in handy --orbevital--'· in many pic- situations. Contrast of light must be studied to gauge the difference between its light and dark areas. Do you expose for the highlights-... or the shadows? There is no one answer. It is determined by each subject's important elements.
