In a world where television and magazines have saturated our imaginations to numbness with an endless stream of great sports images, Kluetmeier’s photographs manage to perform the unthinkable: they cause us to pause, to examine – and, most importantly, to feel. Indeed, if there is one defining characteristic of Kluetmeier’s images, it is their ability to draw us into the passion of the moment, to make us experience the emotions of that moment – whether it’s an instant of victory or defeat, of joy or sadness.This image is unframed, measures 17″x22″, and includes a certificate of authenticity from the International Swimming Hall of Fame.  Donated By: The International Swimming Hall of Fame…To bid on this item…click the link below:
