Telling the story of how sport has been shown through the medium of photography, the book tracks the evolution of an art form, and in doing so reveals fascinating insights into the history of sport itself." "The photographs are shown in sequences, each selected for photographic merit and historic interest. As the story unfolds a transition is revealed: from amateurism to commercialism, from posed images to intense action, from distant views to tight focus and from black and white to colour. Although sports equipment is ever-changing, stadiums have been continually developed and technology has improved beyond recognition, sports photographers today can be seen addressing some of the same problems as their counterparts 100 years ago."--Jacket." ;
