Leni Riefenstahl was an incredibly gifted filmmaker, regardless of her politics. Fortunately, politics didn't obscure the perfection of the film "Olympia", made at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, from which these stark, beautiful black-and-white photographs were made. Riefenstahl pioneered innovative camera angles and techniques in order to create a strong vision of the Olympics. She presents athletes as artists -- practitioners of the art of sport. Through her lens, we view the epitome of the beauty of athleticism, the excitement of competition, and the zenith of human idealism. Very highly recommended.  
  
 
  
From Library Journal 
  
Riefenstahl presents a photographic record of the 1936 Olympic Games captured during the filming of her famous documentary, Olympia. The more than 300 black-and-white photographs reveal both the athletes and the filmmakers at work. Note that the author was active in Nazi propaganda and the 1936 games were held in Berlin, so the book includes a few shots of Hitler, swastikas, etc.
