"A hidden treasure for the hockey world."
Craig Campbell, The Hockey Hall of Fame "The real excitement in Lewis Portnoy's life began one night 30 years ago, when he witnessed a savage brawl in a now shattered establishment just east of Dogtown (St. Louis)."
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
The brawl that changed Lewis Portnoy's life was in a major league hockey game. He had brought a newly bought Nikon to the game, "and I jumped up and started shooting." He became, for 10 great years (1967-1976), the leading photographer of hockey in North America, pioneering new lighting and photography techniques, soon copied by other professionals.
Portnoy's 75 color photographs of National Hockey League players in action represent the birth of modern hockey, after the expansion from the original six-team league. New equipment, colorful goalie masks and uniforms, and a faster, international influence made the spectacle more crowd-pleasing. And! as the league grew, the audience got bigger.
This book is the first to chronicle the opening of that era in hockey, and Lewis Portnoy's photos perfectly complement the descriptive text by Andrew Podnieks. There are essays and player anecdotes about the development of the larger league and the great times that went along with it.
Andrew Podnieks is a hockey historian.
Recensione: Perhaps it's as simple as the colorful uniforms dappling the stark white background, but no sport photographs more beautifully than hockey. Shooting Stars is a collection of the splendid images of the '70s eternally frozen by Lewis Portnoy, the photographer who, with his strobe lights and zoom lenses, revolutionized the capturing of hockey on film. More than just a master of action, Portnoy introduced marvelously detailed, close-up portraits of players in action. Each of the 75 full-page color pictures, all permanently enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame, is accompanied by a full page of explanatory text, all of it historical, much of it anecdotal. Some of the more unforgettable prints to check: an ancient and exhausted Gordie Howe, a scarred and bump-faced Bobby Hull, Chuck Lefley tottering precariously on one skate, maskless dinosaur Gump Worsley in the net, iron man Garry Ungar bloodied and bruised, and goalie Jaques Plante taking a face full of flying ice. Portnoy's camera not only preserves the chill, it lets you feel it. --Jeff Silverman
