by Ellen Dugan
Publisher's Description
This anthology "examines the significant interrelationships between sports, photography, and culture in the United States, Europe, and Russia since the late nineteenth century. A wide range of images shows the actual look of sports--the athletes, the action, the spectators, the stadiums, fields, and playgrounds on which these dramas are enacted. . . ."--the publisher. The book also explores connections between sports and photography that have permanently shaped our culture and stereotypes about sports, gender, age, and other issues. This Sporting Life features 141 works by 120 American and European photographers.
