Born to Run: Athletes of the Iditarod

Overview

It’s a familiar image: a line of dogs surging through snow along the Iditarod trail. It can be easy to forget that each team is made up of individual dogs, each one bred and trained to perform at the pinnacle of canine ability.

Albert Lewis, a professional photographer and dog lover, was skeptical of the race when he first moved to Alaska, but after seeing the dogs’ excitement at the Iditarod starting line and experiencing the mushers’ deep connection with these athletes, his ...

Overview

It’s a familiar image: a line of dogs surging through snow along the Iditarod trail. It can be easy to forget that each team is made up of individual dogs, each one bred and trained to perform at the pinnacle of canine ability.

Albert Lewis, a professional photographer and dog lover, was skeptical of the race when he first moved to Alaska, but after seeing the dogs’ excitement at the Iditarod starting line and experiencing the mushers’ deep connection with these athletes, his perception of the race was forever changed. Determined to show the world the heart and soul of these animal athletes that run thousands of miles, he took his camera and set out to revolutionize our image of sled dogs.

In Born to Run, Lewis stops the dogs long enough to spotlight them as individuals, letting their personalities shine through. Lewis draws on his experience as a fashion photographer, capturing unique moments of stunning beauty and stoic grace, emphasizing their athleticism even as they're standing still. Additional photos show the dogs interacting with their mushers during care and training. The full-page photos are finely detailed, and readers will find themselves nearly reaching out to stroke the dogs on the pages. Accompanied by just enough text to provide each dog’s name, age, and trail miles, the photos are left to speak for themselves.

The hundreds of thousands of Iditarod fans across the globe have made the race a historic event, and race fans and dog lovers alike will be drawn to this book.

Editorial Reviews

Field Notes - Marcy Davis
"You want, nay need, this book. . . . It’s (almost) as good as a pile of husky puppies. Born to Run: Athletes of the Iditarod is a must for any animal lover."
Dean Karnazes
"Captured in repose, rather than motion, these dogs that can perform amazing athletic feats, are visually captivating as seen through Albert's lens."
GoMush.com
"When I saw Albert's work, all I could say is WOW. . . . Born to Run is a wonderful collection of canine athletes by a very talented photographer."
Daily News-Miner
"This book is a dog lover’s dream, filled as it is with fetching head tilts, big doggie grins, goofy dangling tongues, intensely focused eyes, flopped over ears, and all those other physical traits that have so endeared these animals to us. Yet with its formal approach it is much more. The inner beauty of dogs has been captured as well, the strength of character that has made them our friends. Born to Run is a remarkable book, wholly original and hard to set down."
