Olympians Photographed by Walter Iooss Jr.
Golden Hour: Olympians Photographed by Walter Iooss Jr. highlights dozens of photographer Walter Iooss Jr.’s images from the Museum’s Collection. Over his 60-year career, Iooss (born Temple, TX 1943) has captured hundreds of celebrated athletes training for and playing their sports, as portraits, and a select few as they prepared for the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. He began his career shooting for Sports Illustrated and has contributed to the magazine for more than 50 years.
Golden Hour is on view in conjunction with the exhibitions Artistic Tribute: Representation of the Athlete and Precious Medals: Gold, Silver, Bronze. These exhibitions are organized by the Asheville Art Museum and curated by Whitney Richardson, associate curator.
