An catalogue of an exhibition held February 19 through May 13, 2012, The Sports Show is a moving picture show in its own right, flashing before us a history of twentieth-century sport caught on film. Here are Jacques-Henri Lartigue’s early twentieth-century photographs of his family’s adventures driving race cars; Eadweard Muybridge’s famous images of “animal locomotion”; photographs by artists as well known as Alfred Stieglitz, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Stanley Kubrick, Edward Steichen, Garry Winogrand, Richard Avedon, Andy Warhol, and Andreas Gursky; and an abundance of extraordinary images from anonymous others who made our pastimes stop time. --book jacket.
