Printed on thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents some of the photographer's finest and most representative sports images, one of the toughest photographic projects anyone could possibly undertake. The appeal of taking photographs of athletes in action is that it allows the photographer to show how a still medium can capture and communicate convincingly and compellingly movement, motion, and rhythm. Marvin Newman's classic, "Uppercut, Blurred Motion, 1960", the photograph on the cover, is a great example of how one feels the force, energy, and vitality of motion, beautifully captured on film. The British man-of-letters Jonathan Miller devoted a significant portion of his book, "On Reflection", to the way our eyes are trained to "see", not just imagine, movement in art, and attributes the changes in our way of seeing to the technical as well as creative advances in photography. A "must-have" title for Marvin E. Newman collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in gold marker on the first page by Marvin E. Newman. This title was not sold commercially to the public, is now virtually impossible to find, and highly collectible. This is the only signed copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. Illustrated with color plates and black-and-white reproductions. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A flawless copy. . $50.00
