In mid-June, freefall photographer Mike McGowan released “Selections by Mike McGowan,” a fine-art book that documents more than 50 years of skydiving history through more than 100 of his finest photographs.
McGowan’s longtime friend and col league Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld said, “Few people have had a front-row seat to witnessing 54 years of the amazing history of our sport. Far fewer have documented it by capturing the true beauty of skydiving on film for the same five decades. Mike McGowan is one of those very few.” He added, “He is more than just a photographer. He doesn’t merely capture the picture. He creates the picture. Mike has put his heart, soul and passion into every picture he’s taken, and you can see it in his work. Whether it was world records, students, stunts or boogie loads of every discipline, Mike brought the best out of everyone in front of his cameras. In his photos you can see and feel the energy and emotion of the skydivers being filmed, as well as that of Mike himself. It’s truly magical.” The 120-page book is available at selectionsthebook.com for $42.95. It contains 112 photos, most of which measure 11 by 14 inches.
