to 5 p.m. 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.
