Cover Story: Mark Ulriksen’s “Figured Skaters” |

“Like most visual people, I’m attracted to patterns, and in ice skating you’re just basically making concentric circles,” Mark Ulriksen says, about his cover for this week’s issue. “Especially in an overhead view, you can see the circles, like a clock. And when you add the long winter shadows of dusk, you get another pattern. I also like that everyone’s claim to the rink is so democratic. You can be a pro—leap, and spin, and skate backwards—or like me (that’s me in the lower right) years ago, throwing my back out while trying to hold up my kid as she falls.”
