Getty Images photographer David Cannon releases book on iconic golfer Seve Ballesteros
176 pages capture his pride and passion and include exclusive family portraits
London — 7 April, 2021: Getty Images photographer David Cannon, world-renowned golf photographer of over 100+ Majors who has captured some of the most iconic images in golf, is releasing a stunning new book about the life of Severiano Ballesteros, Europe’s most charismatic golfer.
Seve: His Life through the Lens has been compiled by Cannon who was a long-time admirer and friend of the former world No.1, who died aged 54 on 7 May 2011.
“My biggest aspiration for the book is that it captures not only the life and times of Seve, but his unique charisma and spirit…his pride and passion,” said Cannon, who tells the story of how he captured the now iconic images of Seve celebrating a birdie on the 18th green at St Andrews in 1984 to win his second Open title.
As well as photographs from Cannon’s portfolio and Getty Images’ archives, the book features many of the finest action images and portraits taken by other renowned golf photographers of Seve during a career that embraced 95 tournament victories around the world.
The Ballesteros family have also supplied a number of previously unpublished ‘family portraits’ of them with their famous father.
