What started as a secondary medium became what Riger was most known for. He described his approach to sports journalism: You cannot possibly photograph sport unless you understand it completely, and understand and know the men who play it. The same intensity they have to play the game you must have to record it. Not stop it, but suspend it forever in time. 1994 Sports Artist of the Year.
