“I photograph to surprise and delight myself. I am committed to a never-ending search for visual imagery that is new, unique and original. I want to make images that are eye-opening to me. This search for the rare is the force that fuels my visual appetite,” said Sports Photographer of the Year, Howard Schatz.
