Description

Neil Leifer is a master of the art of sports photography. Among his wellknown images is a victorious Muhammad Ali having just defeated Sonny Liston in Lewiston, Maine, considered by many the best sports picture of all time. More than forty-five years after publishing LeiferGCOs first photograph in Sports Illustrated, the current editor assigned him to go on a year-long shooting spree. It was a chance for Leifer to go back in time and shoot many of the same events that he had photographed in the past. The awesome results of his coverage of thirty-two extraordinary events over the course of a year are featured in this captivating book. Included are such exciting events as the World Series, the British Open at St. Andrews, Scotland, the Super Bowl, the Kentucky Derby, the Daytona 500, Wimbledon, and the Tour de France. Supplementing these recent images are vintage pictures from LeiferGCOs archives that illustrate how sports and sports photography have changed over the decades. Award-winning sportswriter Frank Deford provides a lively, anecdotal introduction commenting on LeiferGCOs artistry, composition, and ability to freeze time in just the right moment. In addition, Leifer contributes a preface providing insight into his remarkable career witnessing the worldGCOs greatest sports competitions and also offers introductions to each monthGCOs celebrated events. For anyone who loves sports or great sports photography, this is a must-have book or prized gift.
