Full Description

“His images are a triumph of artistic photography and snowboard camaraderie that showcase all that is great about women’s snowboarding – something the photographer feels has been left on the margins of the sport for too long.” — Sam Haddad, Glorious Sport

Heroes: Women in Snowboarding is the product of two years’ work by photographer Jérôme Tanon, following some of the most dedicated female snowboarders around the world. It is a declaration of love, highlighting the culture, passion and dedication of female snowboarders.

Though women’s snowboarding has developed radically over the last decade, few photographs celebrate the champions of the sport. Over two winter seasons, Tanon traveled the world to meet several snowboarders, hear their stories and photograph them in the streets, the parks and the back-country. The sheer passion they put into their sport was instantly obvious. Shared here are personal stories and artworks by the snowboarders themselves.
