Triolo ©2018

This photo was taken by Tony Triolo (1930–2006), not Arthur Rickerby. I think it’s good to learn the differences, to see how Tony’s early images were more about the action, for example, while Arthur focused on the individuals. Plus, Arthur took few photos of the New York Rangers and Rickerby Hockey wants to give Ranger fans equal representation.

In defence of any shortcomings you might note in Tony’s photo, know that it was shot in 1966 when the technology was in its infancy, and before most of Arthur’s hockey images. See that series of spotlights hanging off the wall? Sports photographers of that era were learning to assemble their own strobe systems and I’m wondering if that’s what that is.
