Publisher's description: The Chief Sports Photographer of the London Times, Marc Aspland has been capturing the beauty and drama of sports for a quarter of a century. This elegant and luxuriously designed book contains more than one hundred images from the photographer's personal archive. Some of the most prominent figures in world sport, such as David Beckham, Usain Bolt, Rafael Nadal, Mike Tyson, Jessica Ennis, Roger Federer, and Jonny Wilkinson, are captured in penetrating and eye opening images. Whether he's documenting pivotal moments in Champions League football, matches at Wimbledon, the Tour de France, the Rugby World Cup, or the Olympics, Aspland, in the words of Oliver Holt, "transcends the action to take in the indomitability of the human spirit; the quest for perfection and fulfillment; and reflects the breathtaking beauty of the world around us." Fans of sports, photography, and portraiture will find something to astonish them on every page of this exciting retrospective.
