Synopsis

A spectacular retrospective showcasing the breathtaking pictures of world-renowned sports photographer, Bob Martin, in all their glory. From his famous and iconic shot of a diver, arched in the air above the Barcelona skyline that became the seminal shot of the 1992 Olympics to his multi-award winning overhead photograph of a Paralympic swimmer leaving his prosthetic legs behind as he dives into the pool, the book features page after page of stunning, awe-inspiring pictures from the world's greatest sporting events. Beautifully printed on 240 expansive pages, 1/1000th presents a collection of images that encapsulate Bob Martin's unique ability to capture sporting moments in a millisecond but always with a sense of place that embraces the context of a particular stadium, venue, event or occasion - be it an Olympics, a Wimbledon, a World Cup or a world title fight. Beyond the photographs themselves, the book completes the picture by telling the stories behind how these amazing images were conceived, planned and finally executed, as well as providing fascinating technical insight into how they were taken.
