Sweetheart Rink: A Time Capsule

October 3, 2015


Photographer Bill Yates captures incredible portraits at the Sweetheart Roller Skating Rink in Tampa, FL between 1972-73.  Aged 26 at the time, Yates used the work as part of his final year studying photography at the University of Southern Florida.  The photos lay dormant, collecting dust in a box but have recently been unearthed.


Technique aside, from a fashion and an historic standpoint the images are striking.  Just imagine your photographic work today being unearthed in the future; a time capsule indeed.
