Contact Sheet

October 13th, 2010, 20:38H · Topics: Guys, Professional Wrestling · Print

As a photographer I enjoy looking at other photographer’s contact sheets.  It shows the thought process and progression of a photo shoot.  You can still do this with digital but for some reason it is just not the same.

Loyd Sandgren shot quite a bit of professional wrestling in the early 1960’s and this is a contact sheet from one roll of film.  He probably shot this with his medium format Rolleiflex camera.  What puzzles me is since it is a square format camera, why do the images keep switching from vertical to horizontal images?

    Row 1, l to r: Yukon Eric vs one of the Von Brauners; can’t see enough detail to tell; possibly Reggie Parks
    Row 2, l to r: not enough detail; Gentleman Saul Weingeroff, manager of Kurt and Karl von Brauner; Don Curtis and Yukon Eric
    Row 3, l to r: Yukon Eric vs one of the Von Brauners; Kurt and Karl von Brauner; not sure
    Row 4, l to r: Don Curtis; possibly Reggie Parks; not sure
