Now on view at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery is “Day to Night”, the second exhibition of works on this theme by photographer Stephen Wilkes. The images represent a visual exploration of an iconic location, photographed from daybreak to nightfall, often capturing an historical event from start to finish: Easter Mass at the Vatican in 2016; the Inauguration of President Obama at the U.S. Capital in 2013; and on our Style of Sport beat, the final stage of the Tour de France in Paris in 2016.

At first glance, what is most obvious in these photographs is the light changing as time progresses from day into night. On closer inspection however, which is mandatory, what you see is everything that happened during that time span, seamlessly compressed – literally — into one image. Taken from a single fixed position, Wilkes selects from hundreds of moments captured, putting together all these slivers of time and what occurred within them, into a single image. For his sport photographs, our point of entry, like the Tour de France mentioned, the famous Palio horse race in Siena, or the America’s Cup in San Francisco Bay – we see the start, middle, and finish of the race all in one view.

Two For One

 

 

Twin sisters, Cristen Barker and Kimmy Hise, are better known as the ChinTwins. Former fashion models, this gorgeous yogi duo has an Instagram following that has swelled to over 70,000 since we last featured them in Twin Poses. Using their powerful platform as social media influencers, the sisters have paired with Senhoa on the Clarity Collection, a jewelry line created to provide safe employment to survivors of human trafficking in Cambodia.
 
Senhoa is a non-profit organization that provides assistance, education, training and opportunities to women and girls who are at risk or have survived human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Cambodia. Each artisan individually handcrafts every piece of jewelry and 100 percent of the sales goes towards funding early intervention initiatives. Senhoa’s mission is to combat human trafficking and sexual exploitation through empowerment, advocacy, and prevention programs.

Ready, Set, Show!

 

 
Now in its fourth year, The Rolex Central Park Horse Show has taken over Wollman Rink once again, transforming New York City’s famed ice skating rink into a Grand Prix show jumping ring. Nestled at the bottom of Central Park, with the city’s skyscrapers behind it, this urban yet bucolic setting makes for a spectacular venue. The show has become a highlight of the equestrian circuit, attracting the biggest names in the sport who come to compete under the lights and under the stars in the heart of New York City.

The course itself is extremely challenging for both riders and horses, squeezing the multiple combinations of head high jumps that define a Grand Prix competition into what is a small and oddly shaped arena. But first there is the metamorphosis of an ice skating rink into a horse ring which is no easy feat. From the first load of dirt to the first horse in the ring, it is about 5 non-stop days and nights of activity – one that we thought would fun to document. The time lapse video shown above takes place over the course of week, compressing the whole process into about 90 seconds.

Eye of the Falcon

 

 
In what fans had hoped would be an exciting rematch of the 2016 NFC Championship Game, the Atlanta Falcons came out on top again Sunday night, beating the Green Bay Packers 34-23. As eagerly anticipated was the Sunday Night Football debut of the $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the brand-new home of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United FC (MLS).

The state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium covers 2,000,000 square feet, and includes 71,000 total seats. It boasts the largest scoreboard in the world — three times as large as any in the NFL — a revolutionary 360 degree, 58 by 1100-foot LED “halo board” that circles the entire arena. There is also 100-foot mega-column LED display board.

What is most spectacular about the new stadium, however, is its 14-acre retractable roof, featuring 8 translucent petal-like panels that weigh roughly 500 tons each, and open and close like a camera lens. In front of a sellout crowd, the stadium’s groundbreaking roof opened for the first time Sunday night for the Falcons’ first open-air home game since 1991.
