My Life In Sports Images

For this project, I chose one iconic sports image for each year I have been alive (i.e. one for 1989, one for 1990, etc.). I also considered the social impact some of these images had, since the world of sports can often evoke change or awareness. Without further ado, here are the 26 I chose:

1989: Michael Jordan’s “The Shot”

1989

1990: Buster Douglas Knocks Out Mike Tyson

1990

1991: Magic Johnson Retires Due to HIV

1991

1992: The Dream Team
