Snap: Extraordinary Pictures by Award-Winning Sports Photographers
When Ian Thorpe slipped from his block at the trials for the Athens Olympics, Fairfax photographer Craig Golding was beside the pool, capturing the moment for ever. Just as his colleagues were for Cathy Freeman's Olympic win in Sydney, Steve Waugh's final send-off and Lleyton Hewitt's greatest moments on the court. Featuring the work of seven of the country's best photographers, Snap paints a fascinating picture of sport at its best and most dramatic. The book includes images from the Sydney and Athens Olympics, the rugby World Cup, swimming, tennis, motor racing, yachting, horse racing, golf and football of all codes. These are the defining sporting moments of the past five years, captured in the awe-inspiring work of photographers from The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. From Ricky Ponting and his team in competition around the world to Jodie Henry at the Athens Olympics, Andrew Johns doing his best for rugby league, Nathan Buckley relaxing at St Kilda Beach and Jana Pittman striding it out on the track, this superb photographic collection is a slice of history that celebrates sport of all kinds, the people and the fans, in victory and defeat.
