Description

A Sporting Life is divided into five themed chapters: “The Sportsman,” “Taking the Air,” “Training,” “Women and Children” and “Sport as Spectacle.” Here, we witness how sports were transforming social relations, introducing new opportunities for expression, especially across gender lines. In an essay, historian Thierry Terret reveals the complexity of Lartigue’s technical approach to photography, and looks at the issues surrounding the rise of sport in its modern incarnation as a leisure pursuit and as commerce. In a preface, novelist Anne-Marie Garat (whose own narratives often feature the themes of photography and family) provides a personal perspective on Lartigue’s sports photography, also exploring the role played by sport in the development of photography itself.
