Two students from the life drawing class at Hartwick College, Oneonta, NY

I encountered these two students in the dining hall of Hartwick College after I gave a talk there to the drawing class. I did not ask the relationship between these two, but I thought they looked like good friends when I saw them afterwards sitting together. But why do I need to know about people I photograph as long as they look good? Only curiosity.

I am not a gossip columnist. I am a recorder of interesting looking people, whatever lies between them. What drew me particularly to these two, apart from their lovely faces, was the contrast in their clothes. "Let’s keep it simple," for the young woman on the right whereas the young woman on the left likes to do her hair and to wear eye-catching things. The cap, showing its wear and tear, is a brilliant choice.
