Photos by three RIT alumni are featured in Game Face: What Does a Female
Athlete Look Like?, a book and exhibition compiled by Jane Gottesman
and Geoffrey Biddle. The 139-photo exhibit was on display at the Smithsonian
Institution from June through December and in Salt Lake City from January
through March, and will be at the Womens Museum in Dallas from
May through July 2002.
The book, published by Random House, is a collection of 182 color and
black-and-white photos of women athletes that span the decades from
the 1890s to the present. The images are of the famous and the unknown,
ranging from Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Amelia Earhart to a 13-year-old
Lynn Johnson 75 has two photos in the book: one of a high school
athlete preparing for a game, and another of a double amputee who runs
on artificial feet. Robert Bukaty 82 contributed a photo of a
Maine woman tossing an iron skillet. A photo of the 1982 U.S. Womens
Lacrosse Team by Gerald Williams 75 also is included.
