Format: Hardcover
When you buy a book like this as a gift for a West Point graduate you may wonder whether you have done the right thing... - and so I did.

The pictures are aesthetically pleasing. There is just enough of a homoerotic soupçon to make this a pleasing book for those who indulge in the body beautiful. Never mind that; what about the mind?

"Athlete/Warrior" is filled with an excellent assortment of male and female cadets both in uniform and in sports attire. The locations are varied and interesting. The juxtaposing images add a great deal to the visual enjoyment of the book. Very well done.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 19, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Anderson and Low are photographers who have earned their credentials in their craft. The concept of juxtaposing images of men and women in military training in US Military Academy, West Point, the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, US Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs in both their uniformed regalia and their sports outfits makes a good point: basic training is not dissimilar on many levels from athletic training for competition. It is the sport that comes through as well as the team spirit.

For this viewer the aspect that weakens the portfolio is the static sense to the images. Granted the photographers are not utilizing buff models to excite the viewer, this being more reportage than art, but the photographic choices tend to become bland in lighting and composition - traits not usually the case with these fine photographers. It feels as though shooting in military academies was under restraints as there is little of the potentially powerful erotic aspect of men and women preparing for careers in battle. It just feels a little hollow. Grady Harp, December 05
