SPORT: Iooss and Leifer
November 14, 2009 – March 7, 2010

Over the span of their careers, Iooss and Leifer have captured the lives of our greatest sports heroes, contributing to the collective visual memory of our times. Their combined photographic experience amounts to nearly a century of documenting history in motion, and creating sports legends.

The Annenberg Space for Photography is now host to a little over a minute of my work, on two beautifully gigantic screens, playing @ 4k res off of a 20TB server. Working at this high of a resolution slowed down the working process but I picked up a few tricks along the way.

Digital Feature
The stirring, still photographs are augmented in the Digital Gallery by a 20-minute high-resolution, live-action film, offering perspectives from the photographers and their subjects – athletes such as Super Bowl Champion Joe Montana and Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee – as well as magazine and newspaper editors, sport commentators and other photographers.

The digital feature presentation will expand your experience by presenting several hundred additional photographs along with interviews and commentary from athletes and artists. The exhibit will also explore the concepts of the athlete as a hero and role model in our society, as well as how sports are used to improve the public well-being.
