With their unique ability to engage with the audience, pictures tell stories that words cannot. During our first year of putting together The Fifty, our photographers helped give our stories depth and captured the authentic side of the athletes.
From Camille Conrad and Gabby Scott rocketing across race tracks, Michael Bishop, Joe Blanton, Samantha Hislop and Mark Appel chasing new paths after a career making passes on the gridiron and throwing strikes on the pitching mound, to Sonya Wilson, Tara Llanes, Ahmed Shareef, Noelle Lambert, Chris Nikic and Craig Cunningham proving that the human spirit conquers all.
So, here is a sampling of the best images our photographers captured in 2023.
Photos by Matthew Fults, Jasmine Hoffman, Wyatt Caldwell, Joe Buvid, PJ Davis, Oliver Parish, Albert Law, Rob DePew, Marcus Paladino, Chris Soule, David Berding, Matt Odom, Ben McKeown, Stephanie Ringleb, Meredith Mashburn and Lucas Peltier.
