Fred Meijer: Stories of His Life
Fred Meijer: Stories of His Life
In this book Bill Smith and Larry ten Harmsel offer an engaging glimpse into the life of Fred Meijer (b. 1919), a prominent retailer whose Grand Rapids-based company has grown from one local store in Greenville, Michigan, to a chain of nearly 200 stores in five Midwestern states. Smith and ten Harmsel have gathered reminiscences from nearly a hundred people who have known and interacted with Fred during the past eighty years - from U.S. Presidents and ambassadors to clerks at the grocery checkout - and the result is a unique biography of an innovative and energetic businessman whose economic, philanthropic, and philosophical influence has been felt across a broad segment of the Midwest. Replete with photos and captivating anecdotes, Fred Meijer: Stories of His Life is an inspiring read not only for Meijer buffs but also for students of business and management in modern America.

I am interested in documenting contemporary American life, and so I attend events where I think there is a good possibility to photograph some aspect of our world, and capture in a single image aspects that would indicate who we are and what we do. Festivals and parades are probably my favorite activities as there are always a lot of people doing something interesting and usually wearing clothes chosen for the event. I am also drawn to clouds and was happy to have atmospherics play an important part of this image. My wife inadvertently echoed Ansel Adams when she first saw this photograph. I visited him at his home in the 1970's and when I showed him a photograph made of distant mountains in the desert, with two friends in the foreground, he told me he liked it, but thought it would be better without the people. That is one aspect of this image that I love: I would have felt successful with just a photograph that consisted only of the colors of the amusement rides, and the clouds and sky, but the teenagers add the details that connect to my interest in sociology. I admire the work of Pieter Bruegel, especially "Children's Games" (from 1560), and have always thought it would be great to be able to create a photograph that had that level of complexity. I do not think I have completely succeeded, but with this photograph I am happy to be a bit closer. I am grateful to the kids who unknowingly participated, and to the "Poor Jack" workers who turned on the lights of the "Zipper" for me when I asked, even though it was an hour before they had been instructed to. ******* "County Fair" was accepted to the juried Whitewater Show at IU East, in Richmond, Indiana.

This church is four stories high at its peak, and used to be a supermarket (Meijer, when it was still “Meijer's Thrifty Acres”) when I was growing up. Kim and I attended one service there, a New Year's Eve service, many years ago. I was one of several photographers contributing to the party atmosphere, and Kim operated a spot light (for the first, and so far only, time in her life). It was fun, it was loud, very much unlike how this photo portrays the building on an early Saturday morning. HDR from three photos, stacked and tonemapped in Photomatix. Some adjustment layers in PSCS3 and a duplicated and multiplied sky finished this one.

The Gladiators: History's Most Deadly Sport
Superfit, muscled, and macho, gladiators were hero-worshipped for their skills and courage as they fought to the death, yet despised for their humble status. For over six cruel centuries, tens of thousands died in the blood soaked arenas of Rome and its colonies, watched by enthralled crowds screaming for violence. Professor Fik Meijer has ingeniously pieced together their true stories from contemporary evidence, describing the gladiators' origins, daily life, training, and the odds of their survival pitted against their legions of fans' lust for blood and spectacle.
