There are two subjects in this box. What appears to be few images from majorette out of a parade we’ve seen before. This time there’s an name, I can make out Jo Ann Fonseca-Marquard (sic). There’s also a note “Lodi Parade”.
The rest are images from a Loyola – Pacific football game at night in October 1948.
No further identifying information, just presenting the images as they popped up through the scanner.
Pretty much everyone was shooting Graflex Super D or Graflex Speed cameras in 4×5 or 3×4 press format. It is only after 1948 that we see the smaller 120 and 220 film format make its debut in Naranjado COP yearbook photography. I believe 1949 is the first year there’s also 8mm movie film on campus.
The above image identifies the background as clearly COP. Same for the double-exposure below.
I no longer believe Joel’s double exposures are all accidental. There are just too many of them he printed out. It’s hard for double exposure to make sense, you have to set up the shots for this. But Joel did experiment a lot with other concepts. I’m giving him credit for trying.
Joel continued the photography on another day in the street, with some good creative use of low angle for perspective. He’s also using different film stock for the non-parade photography.
And there’s even an outfit change/
In the last image Joel made sure the throwback was perfect.
We’ve seen at least one color slide image from Jo Ann in a previous blog post, repeating it here for completeness. This image however is again part of a parade at COP. Joel must have known Jo Ann in one or other capacity.
As alluded in the intro of this blog post, the rest of the images are from a Loyola – Pacific football match at night.
As we can observe gain, sports night photography is never easy. There were limitations to the flash bulbs, the long afterglow didn’t help creating sharp images as one can tell in the above collection.
