But I wanted to pay tribute to one of my favorite sports photographers, Ozzie Sweet, who passed away Wednesday at the age of 94. Sweet had several collections of his work published, notably
- Mickey Mantle: The Yankee Years: The Classic Photography of Ozzie Sweet
- Legends of the Field: The Classic Sports Photography of Ozzie Sweet
- The Boys of Spring
Bruce Weber wrote the obituary, which appears in today's NY Times. There's also a slide show on the Times' website. And here's a profile of Sweet from Coastal Homes about three years back.
