Iooss & Leifer
Nov 14, 2009 - Mar 07, 2010

In SPORT: Iooss and Leifer, the Annenberg Space for Photography presented the work of two photographers whose work transcends their genre – the oeuvre of sports photography. Walter Iooss and Neil Leifer’s work offer a dialogue not just about winning and losing, but all that it means to be human.

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.

What shines through the still photographic images are the inner workings of aspiration and triumph; tremendous strength coupled with consummate grace; a keen sense of vision and personal drive propelled by amazing physicality. The exhibit examined the great heights and depths of human experience condensed into single, stirring, revelatory frames.
