Sport – My Way – A journey through the Art of Sport

The cover of the new book published July 2015 - 'Sport - My Way' by Eileen Langsley

The cover of the new book published July 2015 – ‘Sport – My Way’ by Eileen Langsley

For quite a while I have been aiming to create a book which summed up my approach to sports photography and which featured many of my favourite images. I am happy to announce that I have recently accomplished this goal and it is now available in print and as an eBook for iPads. This link will bring up all the details of this project, with the chance to preview several pages and make any orders:-

http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/6360480-sport-my-way

The book is large format hardback (12″x12″) printed on art paper and it is intended as a collector’s item. I am grateful to Popperfoto and to the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame for permission to reproduce photographs which are now in their ownership; these comprise my film based images taken between 1976 and 2003.

The book poses this question:-

Is sport a phenomenon that is based on purely physical, competitive activity or can it also exhibit inspirational artistic moments as well?

It takes a look at both these aspects of sport, featuring photography from a wide range of sports and events and which illustrates that artistry is inherent in all kinds of sports, taking the reader on a journey of exploration of these themes in each chapter of the book. ‘The Art of the Moment’ features exciting images captured at the peak of the action; ‘The Art in Detail’ takes a closer look; ‘The Art of Expression’ includes artistry in movement as well as in the emotions on show; ‘The Art of Observation’ focuses on the importance of this quality to the photographer; ‘Created Art’ looks at how photographers can use photographic techniques to generate a different way of looking at images; ‘The Art of the Event’ demonstrates how photographers can step back from the action to put the activity in the context of the whole environment. Whilst images take pride of place, there is text to accompany each chapter and relevant quotes from some of the world’s great photographers are also used. The featured images were taken at many events – from the Olympic Games through to local activities for children – and all have been carefully selected to illustrate the theme of the book.

To provide a flavour of the style and nature of the book, a number of page designs are included. Please respect the copyright of these images.

A new cycle

A new cycle.

 

“Be equal to your talent, not your age.”

–      Yevgeny Yevtushenko

Please respect the copyright of the images and text in this posting.

The year following an Olympic Games is always an interesting one in any sport as new talent begins to emerge onto the Senior scene and established competitors strive to maintain their hold on the sport.

This was particularly true of the 2013 British Gymnastics Championships, held at the Liverpool Echo Arena from March 22nd to 24th. The event incorporated the Junior Women’s Championships as well as the Under 16 Youth and Under 18 Junior Men’s events. Staging the event in a major arena gives these young gymnasts a great experience of competing on a podium in front of a large audience; this is invaluable as they move up to compete on the International scene.

2012 was a memorable and outstanding year in the history of British Gymnastics and the unforgettable performances of both our teams at the Olympic Games will live long in the memory.

2013 sees the beginning of a new Olympic cycle and whilst some senior gymnasts have now retired from competition, others are aiming to continue competing at the highest level. Significant amongst these are male gymnasts Daniel Keatings and Theo Seagar, both of whom narrowly missed Olympic selection but who have overcome their disappointment and are working for this year’s major events. They both achieved excellent results in Liverpool taking five apparatus titles between them and were rewarded with selection for the forthcoming European Championships in Moscow.

The Senior Women’s event was significant as several gymnasts enjoyed their first showing competing as seniors, having impressed last year at Junior level. Interestingly two of these gymnasts outshone the opposition to take the Gold (Gabby Jupp) and Silver (Charlie Fellows) medals. Niamh Rippin (another gymnasts who narrowly missed Olympic selection) took the bronze.

The Junior Women’s competition saw Tyesha Mattis taking the all around title following on from her outstanding success in this year’s Australian Youth Olympic Festival where she held off world wide competition to become overall champion. Close behind her came promising young gymnasts Amy Tinkler and Ellie Downie (sister of senior gymnast Becky Downie).

Fresh from her success Down Under, Tyesha Mattis (East London) wins the British Junior title.

It was impressive to see that talent is so wide spread thought the UK with no one club dominating the scene. From Scotland to Wales to all areas of England, clubs are producing great talent and the level of coaching is impressively high.

There may have been a bitter wind blowing from the Mersey throughout the three day event but competition was hot and fierce inside the arena. Established stars found themselves under pressure from the new kids on the block and the youngsters responded to the challenge by competing like veterans. 2013 sees both European and World Championships on the calendar and we can confidently hope for a continuation of the great results achieved in recent years.

As my website is at full capacity I am posting images here. These images posted here constitute examples of what is on offer.

Ever since the closing of the Games I have wanted to produce a photographic tribute to all those involved – not only the gymnasts and coaches but also all those who made the Games happen – officials, Games Makers, spectators, families. This book is my tribute to them all and I hope it will be a constant reminder to them of their great achievements.
