A few minutes with Walter Iooss – Legendary Sports Photographer

Yesterday at the Annenberg Space for Photography, we were given a preview of the new exhibit Sport: Iooss and Leifer.
And luckily, the two photographic masters were on hand to chat a little bit about their life and work.

The first video chat we’ll present is with Walter Iooss.
The few minutes included here are, of course, cursory, but candid.

If you have a chance to visit the show, one of the major highlights are the videos on the 2 15ft 4K screens.
Hard to recap such long lives in photography, but they made a brilliant presentation.
