Product Description

Review

"David E. Little’s The Sports Show, a collection of candids, portraits and action scenes, brings us face to face with the anonymous amateurs and world-famous figures from across the past century. The most intimate images may be those of boxing matches, studies in poise and pain. Here are stars- Louis, Graziano, Patterson, Ali- but also many so little remembered as to be unidentifiable. In one picture from the ‘40s, a KO’d boxer hits the canvas while the camera’s saucer-like flash-reflector looms above, a conspicuous indicator of the photographers- and fans - always watching." —The Wall Street Journal
