Pioneering and inventive, Toni Frissell (1907 – 1988) captured an abundance of action with a still camera. Taking photography out of the studio while working for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Frissell shot pioneering fashion photos of models outdoors. She was Sports Illustrated’s first female photographer, and one of the only women in sports photography for several decades. During World War II, Frissell took battlefront photos, utilizing the compelling images to bolster support for women and African-Americans in the military. Creating candid-looking photos with small cameras, Frissell produced 340,000 images in her lifetime.

Lord David George Brownlow Cecil Burghley, a renowned British athlete, is seen here on a golf course and is all smiles. He wears a classic three-piece suit with a most gentlemanly cane and top hat. Burghley competed in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris (110m hurdles), the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam (400m hurdles gold medalist and 110m hurdles semifinal), and the 1932 Summer Games in Los Angeles (4x400m relay team silver medalist and 400m hurdles fifth place). He served on the International Olympic Committee for 48 years starting in 1933 and was chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 1948 Summer Olympics in London. The photograph, by Toni Frissell, appeared in the August 1, 1953, Vogue.
