Black and White Sports Photography

Black and white sports photography is a look into the sports cultures that exist around the world. These works feature people, events, and locations that changed the way that people viewed sports. These historic sports photos are collected by sport fans worldwide and many of them are recognizable by sight, even to those who aren't interested in these activities, because of their historical relevance.

Black and white baseball pictures make up the majority of this category. Some of these photographs reveal relevant sights in their execution, as seen in 'Wrigley Field-Outside/Sepia' or 'Yankee Stadium 1923 Opening Day with Overlay'. However, in many cases, the stars of this category are the players themselves, making black and white sports photography one of the most inclusive categories in the world of black and white images.

However, baseball wasn't the only sport to be examined in these historic sports photos. Events that shaped other sports are also represented in these framed sports images. Works such as 'Free Golf' and 'Muhammad Ali-1965 1st Round Knockout against Sonny Liston' serve as glimpses into a different time and the people who were determined not to let it bring them down.

The sports images present in black and white photography are diverse and important in understanding certain aspects of the culture in which they developed. Although modern audiences can't go back to the days when this event occurred, they can record these significant happenings and feel inspired by the people that made them happen.
