This exhibition features new work by acclaimed photojournalist David Burnett, commissioned by his 2017 Greenfield Prize at the Hermitage Artist Retreat. For his latest project, Fourth Quarter, Burnett has spent nearly two years photographing senior-aged athletes from around the country who dedicate themselves to serious physical competition and team sports. In this engaging series, he treats his subjects with reverence as he celebrates their tenacity and challenges us to rethink our notions of what aging means in the 21st century.
This exhibition was supported, in part, by The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art Foundation.
