Portrait of a Golfer ~ Charlie Sifford

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

I had the pleasure of meeting an photographing Charlie Sifford, a golf legend, at his home in Charlotte, NC. The Southern California Golf Association inducted him into their Hall of Fame this fall, and published a story about his legacy in the pages of its magazine, FORE. You can see a virtual copy of the magazine here. Turn to page 14/15 to view the story & portraits. Sifford, now 89, fought discrimination in golf and ended up winning  two PGA tournaments. He broke the color barrier and paved the way for all athletes to compete fairly. At his home, I photographed him with his golf club, his golf memorabilia and also focused on capturing a simple portrait of his face.  It was an honor to work with him and here are some of my favorite images from my assignment with Charlie Sifford.
