ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER:

Lawrence Wurcik is a Los Angeles-based sports, antiquities, justice system and wild life photographer. He emerged in the news business in the 1970s after writing a critically acclaimed slam piece on the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner published in the Los Angeles Weekly Newspaper. He retired shortly after that article ran and had hoped to live out his days as a woodworker and beekeeper in Central California. 

In 2008, however, he exhausted all of his funds and was forced to take up photojournalism, specializing in the four areas identified above. He made his way to Israel in July to cover the Maccabi Games and covered the opening ceremony and men's water polo games.  

More images may be posted. Mr. Wurcik regrets that he cannot respond to individual inquiries, but will read all email sent to him.

 

 


More about the photographer

Wurcik was raised by a pack of coyotes in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., and later went on to Harvard, where he majored in electrical engineering and South Asian philosophy. He worked as a channeled photographer's assistant with Mathew Brady. He owns just one camera, a Kodak Brownie, first manufactured in 1951. He resides in an Airstream trailer parked beneath the takeoff area for the North Complex runways at Los Angeles International. Airport.
