_ Bill Frakes


Many years ago, a young American mother named Agnes Frakes pointed out images all around her tiny Nebraska town to her four-year-old son Bill: a cat's shadow, a pool of oil beneath a car, his own name etched in a cookie tray of caramel popcorn. The boy looked at the objects and saw nothing. 'Look again,' she said. 'There is always more there than what your eye sees...' Twenty-five years later the boy became one of the most accomplished sports photographers in the world. - James McBride, part of his introduction in the book "Family: A Celebration of Humanity."
