BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Glory: Photographs of Athletes

FROM THE PUBLISHER
In this arresting gallery of champions, Richard Corman's striking photographs draw the viewer into a deep, place within his subjects. It is the realm of emotion and drive, an elusive place rarely captured on film. We see the ferocious desire of Charles Barkley and the elegance of Jackie Joyner-Kersee. We are bathed in the infectious love of Special Olympians and tingle at the sight of Michael Jordan's stillness. Richard Corman sees these athletes--from Cal Ripken to BMX bikers, from Aimee Mullins, who, with prosthetic legs, ran track for Georgetown, to Muhammed Ali--not just as victors or the defeated, but rather for the pure human spirit that they share. Interwoven with remarks by writers, journalists, and athletes, Glory tells a story--about having the gumption to lose and knowing that winning is a state of mind; about the symbiosis of grace and power and the transformation of energy into passion. Corman's lens closes the distance between hero and worshipper, creating an intimacy that reveals what is in us all: hope and restlessness, determination and an innate striving for personal best. Oversized and printed on stunning paper, Glory is the perfect--and most original--gift book for any sports fan or photography lover.
