Sports by Shape

Athletics are a great and important part of life. Being active is important in our overall health. We naturally assume that athletes are healthier than we are because of the level of activity. But how does this compare with their body types?What sport requires what shape?

Photographer Howard Schatz chose to showcase these body-image differences in his photo series, “Athlete,” which can be purchased on Amazon.

The series depicts athletes bodies in comparison to other athletes. They pose in front of a black background and are scaled proportionately to highlight the similarities and differences. Each athlete’s name, sport, height and weight are listed below their image.
