About this title


Riger began his career as an illustrator for Sports Illustrated in the early 1950s. By the mid-1960s, his photos were being exhibited in museums across America. The photos speak for themselves, but sports fans will find a special significance in the figures they record--Muhammad Ali, Mickey Mantle, Vince Lombardi--and the events--Superbowls, the World Series, the Olympics and more.

From the Back Cover:

"Robert Riger's photographs show the nobility of the completed gesture, not merely a split fraction of movement, stopped dead. This was something we believed possible only in the hands of geniuses of draughtsmanship like Gericault and Degas."

-- Hugh Edwards

Former curator of photography

Art Institute of Chicago
