What happens when sport and art intersect? For Victory Journal’s 10th issue we sought to answer this very question. From “The Loser,” Gay Talese’s studied portrait of a boxer in decline, to the fascinating story of Bonnie Erickson, the former Henson Studios designer who became the cornerstone of the mascot industry—we looked at the people, places and things that offered an offbeat angle to the art of athleticism. It manifests in every page: whether it’s street photographer Cheryl Dunn’s photos of the decadent, rowdy Triple Crown crowds juxtaposed against the larger-than-life baseball art of Raymond Pettibon, or Bronx-based sculptor John Ahearn’s surreal lifecasts.
Victory Journal 10 turns the concept of sport on its head, presenting a familiar world in unexpected ways.
Victory Journal is a print and digital publication devoted to the intersection of sport and culture. Rather than engage in statistical analysis or partisan squabbling, Victory spotlights the drama of sport and the enduring glory of athletic pursuits the world over.Calling on an elite roster of like-minded contributors, Victory provides a forum for work that is unapologetically enthusiastic and uncompromisingly human. Through extensive reporting, probing personal essays, award-winning photography, illustration, and original films and animations, Victory embraces both classic storytelling methods and those just beginning to emerge.
