karuna: These pictures are fantastic; touching, even. Kudos to Klamar. The objections show a pathetic mentality--they want God pictures, not human pictures. The athletes are special *people*, get it? To treat them otherwise is to disrespect them. And when has national pride become so fragile?

Whatever.

I had no idea who Klamar was. I had to double check to make sure I type the name right. So I don't think the name play any role at least in my case. The photos have an immediate quality and the moments captured are interesting, not textbook boring stuff.

I also have an entirely different reaction than you when I look at the Hardee photo. When I mentioned "touching" in my original post, I was referring to this one. This is a guy who looks ordinary, uncomfortable and even awkward in front of the lens. You won't notice him when he passes by in a mall. And yet he goes out and does amazing things. There is a depth to this; you can stare at this for a few minutes and be more and more amazed. This is, by definition, art.
