Who Shot Sports

, New York City | Arts & Culture , Sport & Games

A comprehensive history of sports photography told through more than 400 images, Who Shot Sports explores the classical appeal of depicting competition and the aesthetics of the human body in motion, as well as the genre’s social and cultural significance. Among the 170 photographers represented are Eadweard Muybridge, Leni Riefenstahl and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Anyone who's been to a sporting event or watched one on television has seen the hundreds of photographers who show up to capture that perfect picture at the perfect time. Sports photographs are some of the most intriguing around, capturing singular moments in competitive history so they will live on forever. The Brooklyn Museum presents this exhibition of more than 200 photographs chosen by photographic historian Gail Buckland that were selected for their "aesthetic, cultural and historical significance." Photographs from 1843 to the present, from a variety of sports and from around the world will be on display. For more information, visit brooklynmuseum.org.
