Speed, agility and grace
From football greats to cycling’s best, Howard’s studies elevate the athlete beyond previous photographers and sports photojournalists attempts to capture a story. While a different setting than classics by Ralph Morse and his Babe Ruth or Jackie Robinson images, Schatz shows how graceful the human body in it’s fittest form can be. As a photography collector, one should find inspiration from each work. Schatz’s focus on not just his skill but that of athletes makes his an excellent addition to an established collection or for the sports memorabilia fan interested in the men and women behind the scenes.
