About

Hinchliffe Stadium, a relic of the American Negro Baseball league, is a 10,000-seat art deco structure surrounded by a series of bas-relief terra cotta sculptures of Olympic figures-marathoners, hammer, discus and javelin throwers. Imagine them witnessing Satchel Paige’s fastball or an infield patrolled by Larry Doby and Jackie Robinson! Overgrown with weeds and graffiti, the field that once thrilled audiences with stolen bases is now occupied by stolen bicycles. One is reminded of how the Greek concept of irony, so important in photography, functions on many levels in these images.
