PHOTO ANNUAL

The world of Nordic skiing photography may not be vast. But what it lacks in number of photographers, it makes up in terms of elegance and quality. Our regular cast of characters—John Lazenby, Christoffer Sjostrom and Gretchen Powers, to name a few—have honed their craft to exquisitely capture the intimacy of the kick and glide, the majesty of the mountains and the purity of tracks in the snow. Our fourth Photo Annual, including profiles of two frequent contributors, showcases all this and more.
