The jump, the launch, the run, the dive, the stroke, the parade, the catch, the kick, the jab. The bodies of the athletes perform the primordial actions of man, refined in the exercise and for the challenge.
Towards Tokyo 2020, a breathtaking overview of the best shots of Japan’s sports photography gotha, in collaboration with Japan Camera Industry Institute. The 50 images selected from the repertoire of 15 authors show the multitude of sports and categories, but above all they intend to pose the key question mark of professional sports photography, or whether to favor aesthetics or news, or create a formidable unicum.
Photos by A. Mizutani, T. Yoshioka, N. Takeda, Y. Nomura and others.
