"The skaters could not realize that their Tampa would become part of the Disneyification of Florida that was just then starting. They could not know that the old rink itself would burn down later in the 1970s. They could not know that Yates, after using some of these photographs to get into the Rhode Island School of Design in 1973, would put the images away for forty years, so that the adolescents of 1972–73 would one day be lifted from boxes and plastic sleeves to experience a new light on their skin, the retrospective illumination of history.
Funny that they party like they sensed all this. This is their last bash—they enjoy themselves like there’s no tomorrow. But their dance is not desperate, and it disdains the name of catastrophe. Instead it unfolds in casual declarations of being that bid a flip defiance to destruction. Momentarily spared the ash and incinerating fumes that laid waste to everything around them, they glory in the good sense of having retreated to the shabby shelter the world has left for them."
Mary Stanley Studio will be popping up this fall on the Westside, presenting an exhibition of silver gelatin photography by Bill Yates at the new Hathaway David Contemporary Gallery.
