U.S. Olympic Water Polo Team
"The water polo situation came about in a joking sort of way really. I had suggested it to the guys the day before the shoot that it might be a fun way of getting across a memorable picture that people would pay attention to ... they were sort of hemming and hawing about it. And then I had four of them in it as a group portrait. And I said, 'So what do you think guys?' We came up with a picture that was acceptable in terms of mainstream publishing. It's a very innocent picture but it's also a lot of fun."
