Getty Ground 1

After four years photographing cricket players in New York and the Caribbean I decided a visit to England to drum up interest in the project was in order. Knowing Paul Getty’s love of the game, and taking a shot at the address of his estate from a Vanity Fair profile (the British postal system being adept at deliveries to landed estates when provided the correct county), I sent several prints with my compliments and was delighted to receive a reply from Mr. Getty’s assistant thanking me and saying I should come out for a match next time I was in England. I booked a flight the next day. (cont.)
