Andrew Lever’s photographs celebrate nature and humans’ interaction with nature. Celebrating vast vistas of seascapes and magical swirls of water in motion, Lever’s photographs depict the sheer magnitude of the natural world. Lever’s photograph The Red Surfer displays an abstract yet recognisable human form enveloped by a wave as the water surges to the shore.

Cody Choi works in black and white to exhibit symmetry and sequence in movement. Whether focusing solely on a single human form, of showing a group moving in collective harmony, Choi captures moments of mid-motion, and in doing so highlights the tranquillity of human movement and interaction. Jaykoe also works in monochrome to portray the continuous movement of the body in action. Both Choi and Jaykoe focus on the expression of the human body to create poignant and poetic images.

Sport Photography is a genre of photography that typically captures a fleeting moment of movement. Whether used commercially, for editorial and advertising purposes, or artistically, sport photography showcases the ability to catch a flash of action, beauty and intensity.

One of the first examples of sport photography can be traced back to 1843, where David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson shot an image of a tennis player posing in a studio. From this point on, sport photography developed as photographic technology advanced. Eadweard Muybridge famously dedicated years to capturing the sequence of a horse in motion. Using twelve cameras, which took photographs in swift succession, Muybridge’s 1878 experiment concluded that technology was capable of capturing transient moments of movement.

From mountain shots and running sequences, to the Olympic Marathon of 1908, movement and pivotal moments of sporting success were becoming captured more and more a the century went on. Initially regarded as photojournalism, sport photography evolved into an art form due to the increasing awareness and appreciation of capturing movement in the twentieth century. Today, sport photography has been responsible for catching some of the world’s most iconic modern images. Neil Leifer’s 1965 image of Muhammed Ali defeating Sonny Liston and Cameron Spencer’s shot of Usain Bolt smiling milliseconds before winning the 100m semi-final of the Olympic Games exemplify how sport photography has the ability to immortalises an unforgettable moment of conviction and intensity.
