Product Description & Reviews

Racing Age is a book of documentary photographs and essays about competitive masters track & field athletes aged sixty and over. These athletes, who are part of a global trend of greater longevity, are continually breaking age group records for running, jumping, and throwing that would have seemed impossible even a few decades ago. They are literally redefining the limits of the aging human body. Photojournalist Angela Jimenez, who is a former collegiate track & field multi-event athlete, documented these athletes in competition over the course of nine years. Racing Age is a collection of stunning black & white medium-format film photographs of masters athletes made at competitions in the United States and Europe. Ten accompanying essays explore the fascinating life stories of a diverse group of athletes who have found meaning in their masters athletic careers. Because they defy visual stereotypes, these athletes surprise us. They are not weak, or vulnerable, or just cute: they are fierce and competitive. It is inspiring and brave, but can also be scary to see. The athletes of Racing Age challenge us to expand our expectations of the aging human body and offer us a hopeful version of our future. In these photographs you meet athletes, racing for reasons you might not grasp, against forces you cannot see. Racing Age.
