Game Face: What Does a Female Athlete Look like? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On playing fields and street corners, in backyards and gyms, the people in this arresting array of pictures are unselfconsciously exploring the physical and emotional pleasures of competition and play. Each image offers an affirming and satisfying answer to the question at the heart of Game Face: What do girls and women look like when freed from traditional feminine constraints, using their bodies in joyful and empowering ways?

To show America what womens sports looks like, Jane Gottesman searched through the work of our countrys best photographers, from the newest photojournalists to artists such as Annie Leibovitz and Ansel Adams. The result is a unique and inspiring document of the tremendous impact that the growth of female sports at all levels is having on societyand on women themselves.

Synopsis:

- A San Francisco Chronicle bestseller

Synopsis:

Combines more than 175 photographs with personal stories, chronicling the dynamic growth of female sports and the impact of athletics on a woman's sense of self and her role in society.
