Exhibition - Legends: The Sports Photography Of Walter Iooss

Sunday, Nov 24, 2019 at 1:00pm

Lyman Allyn Art Museum
625 Williams Street
New London, CT 06320

Walter Iooss (American, b. 1943), a longtime photographer for Sports Illustrated Magazine, has been called the “poet laureate of sports,” capturing the thrill, triumph and complexity of athletes in motion. This exhibition of more than 60 photographs features some of Iooss’s best work from the 1960s to the present. Documenting individual athletes and teams engaged in a wide range of sports, Iooss’s acclaimed photographs capture dramatic moments of victory and loss as well as introspective portraits.

LEGENDS celebrates such greats as Willie Mays, Muhammad Ali, Wilt Chamberlin, Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Serena Williams, among many others. The Lyman Allyn’s Walter Iooss photographs are recent acquisitions, gifts to the collection from multiple donors in 2017 and 2018.
