This exhibition brings together the different yet complementary worlds of athletics and photography in more than 100 images that capture some of the greatest moments in sports history.
The images in “Visions of Victory” are the works of photographers ranging from the world-renowned to the lesser-known and the anonymous. They include William Henry Jackson, one of America’s leading frontier photographers and artists; Annie Leibovitz, an American photographer known for her images of celebrities including political figures, musicians, actors and athletes; and David Burnett, a well-traveled photojournalist who recently was named one of American Photo magazine’s 100 Most Important People in Photography.
