Publisher's Description
Sol Neelman is surely one of the most unusual sports photographers in America: he has a passion for offbeat sports people play in their spare time, which he subsumes them under the blanket label »Weird Sports.« One thing is especially important to Neelman: to convey the fun the players are having – outfitting themselves, playing, and being watched. During his former career as a professional sports journalist, he encountered mostly the earnestness, ambition, and commercialization that are the distinguishing features of today’s world of pro sports. Following an inner calling, Neelman found himself drawn instead to so-called »fun sports« – and he has never for one minute regretted his change of career. His first book Weird Sports (Kehrer 2011), which sparked a worldwide media sensation, is now joined by this sequel, which brings us more whacky ideas and astounding photos to marvel at as people pursue sports such as: Chuckwagon Racing, Lingerie Basketball, Bike Tossing, Frog Jumping, Color Running, Live Monster Wrestling, Forklift Bowling, Water Balloon Fighting, Cowboy Downhill, Barstool Ski Racing, Quidditch, Unicycle Polo, Indoor Skydiving, and much, much more.
