magic is not in the technology, which is explainable rationally. Rather, the magic

An exhibition of the work of photographer Sanford Starobin is on display
through January 30 at The Doshi Center for Contempory Art. The gallery is
located at 1435 N. Second St., Harrisburg, at the corner of Riley St. Hours of the
exhibit are 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The
Center is closed on Saturday. Admission is free.
Starobin, a native of Newark, N.J. and a resident of East Pennsboro
Township, has been photographing for about 20 years. He teaches photography at
Capitol Campus. In addition to the basic black and white photography class, he
also conducts independent studies in an advanced class with individual students.
Currently, Starobin also has two photographs on exhibit at The Focus on
Women section of The Women in the Arts Festival at the William Penn Museum
in Harrisburg. His photographs have also been seen in group exhibitions at the
Harrisburg Arts Festival and at a one-man showing at the Ash Can Gallery in
Harrisburg in 1975.
As a reporter for Westinghouse Broadcasting Company, he covers state
government and politics for KYW radio and television in Philadelphia and KDKA
radio and television in Pittsburgh. Previously he worked for The Philadelphia
Inquirer, first in Philadelphia, then in Harrisburg. Starobin shared in the Dupont
Citation from Columbia University for his coverage of the accident of Three Mile
Island. The Dupont Citation is the broadcasting equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize.
In a set of notes on photography, Starobin insists that photography is akin to
gardening, one of his avocations, in that both are life-producing processes.
Sanford Starobin recently expressed some of his thoughts and attitudes
towards photography. We present them here for your enjoyment:
Photography is at once too easy and too difficult. Virtually anyone can make a
photograph that depicts recognizable matter. Forming and framing that matter in
the context of a single moment and in the confines of a static, rectangular frame is
something else. Many people, however, equate one with the other. Poems are
written with the same alphabet that is used to convey instructions for opening a
can of soup.

15 January 1981
Familiar leaders from history such as
Marcu Aurelius, Queen Elizabeth I of
England, Napolean Bonaparte and
Goethe were exemplified for their
thoughts about "time." Students were
encouraged to list goals and set priorit
ies so that they could adjust schedules
for the best use of their own time.
A common theme was to "Work
smarter -- not harder!" The purpose of
this session was to enable these student
leaders to schedule their time to improve
their campus organizations while devot
ing appropriate amounts of time to class
work and personal life.
