Jimmy Colton, January 14 - © Unique for the Space Last Thursday, our Space was graced with a pair of the best eyes in the business - Jimmy ('only my mother calls me James') Colton - photo editor for Sports Illustrated. Jimmy Colton, January 14, 2010 - © Unique for the Space Jimmy prepped us for his presentation by informing us that during the Olympics his job entailed reviewing 319,000 unedited images to narrow down to 70. Jimmy Colton, January 14, 2010 - © Unique for the Space That's right: 319,000>70. Crazy, right? Then he showed us the 70 or so images - and he proved his point! When we first met Jimmy at our SPORT opening, he told a wonderful story about how he sees his work as digging for the jewel in the lightbox. Jimmy showed us how SI became the source of the 'photo finish' for the famous Phelps 100m race. In this case the jewel was not too hard to find.

The Olympics, Super Bowl, and my favorite, the Ooohs and Ahhhs reel.
