Description

This visual record gives a comprehensive view of modern roller derby. Through 353 images, professional photographer Jules Doyle, a.k.a. Axle Adams, documents regular season bouts and independent tournaments, both flat track and banked track. Experience the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Jules Doyle gets front and center, capturing all the crushing hits, stifling blocking, and nimble jamming. He also goes behind the scenes for the private moments: pre-bout rituals, injuries, and the frustration of being sent to the penalty box. Having photographed over seventy leagues in action, Doyle traces the rise in popularity of this fast-growing sport from its original founders to the modern day stars. Fans of roller derby and lovers of fast-paced, contact sports will enjoy modern roller derbys history, while photography buffs will appreciate Doyles artistic prose with the camera.show more
