Jon Plasse

Celebrating the old at the new

On Friday, August 12, Harpur College helped photographer Jon Plasse '72 release his book of photos The Stadium: Images and Voices of the Original Yankee Stadium at the new Yankee Stadium. Plasse's book, published by SUNY Press, has received critical acclaim.

A reviewer for The New Yorker wrote,

"Plasse has captured quiet, often intimate moments . . . . Rare is the sports photobook that can personalize the deeply communal (some might say tribal) act of attending live sporting events, but this is certainly one."

Before watching the Yankees-Rays game from behind home plate in the Jim Beam Suites, each of the 125 alumni attending received a signed copy of the book that evoked memories of fleeting youth and attending games with family.
