    Description

    1953-57 NHL Stars Color Negatives by Ozzie Sweet Lot of 16. Ozzie Sweet was one of the giants of 20th Century photography. His images appeared on more than 1,800 magazine covers and Albert Einstein, Ingrid Bergman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ernest Hemingway were just some of his many subjects. The New York Times wrote:

    "He considered himself not a news photographer but a photographic illustrator, and like the work of the painter Norman Rockwell, whom he claimed as an influence, his signature images from the 1940s through the 1950s and into the 1960s, many in the fierce hues of increasingly popular color film that emulated the emergent Technicolor palette of American movies, helped define - visually, anyway - an era."

    But it was for his sports photography where Sweet was most recognized. Here are sixteen color negatives of some of the eras greatest competitors, including Don McNeal (1950, one), Elmer Latch (1953, five), Derek Sanderson (1955, three), Doug Harvey (1957, five), Max Bentley (one), and Colville or Stanowski (1949, one). Measures 4x5" to 5x7". NRMT.
