.

Tonight at 7 p.m., ESPN will broadcast Keepers of the Streak, a documentary produced by ESPN Films and NFL Films about the four photographers—one of whom is Walter Iooss—who have shot all 48 Super Bowls.

Among the highlights of the film is New York Jets star Joe Namath recalling Walter covering his team, who were a long shot to win the Super Bowl.

“I remember Walter being there that day because he was a pain. He was all over with his camera, taking pictures,” Namath says in Keepers of the Streak.

Read about the film, and see a gallery of Walter’s Super Bowl images, here.

We’re thrilled to welcome award-winning photographer, director, National Geographic photographer, and longtime The North Face athlete Jimmy Chin to the Stockland Martel roster.

Jimmy—whose clients range from Men’s Journal and Vanity Fair to Squarespace and Adidas—has collaborated with some of the most progressive athletes and explorers in the world, participating in and documenting breakthrough expeditions around the planet, from climbing notable first ascents in the Karakoram to skiing first descents in the Himalayas. He is also one of the few people to climb and ski Mount Everest from the summit.

On January 28, his feature-length documentary, Meru, about three elite climbers who attempt to ascend Mount Meru in the Himalayas, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

“It’s about sharing stories that inspire people, highlighting the infinite human spirit, and opening people’s eyes to a different world,” Jimmy says of his work. “Creating films and photographs through situations that few others could experience is my life’s inspiration.”

Six faces of Nick Kroll: Matthias Clamer’s “group shot” for “Kroll Show”

Matthias Clamer shot the key art for the third and final season of the Comedy Central series Kroll Show, in which comedian Nick Kroll plays many different characters—male, female, old, young—a range that Matthias captured in his photograph.

“Nick’s in the shot six times,” he says. “The picture is loosely a spoof of a famous group shot of the cast of some New Jersey modern-day mafia drama.”
