SI’s legendary photographer Iooss shares thoughts on ESPN

Famed Sports Illustrated photographer Walter Iooss recently visited ESPN. Since he joined SI in 1959, Iooss has shot more than 300 of the weekly’s covers.

He has an appreciation for things ESPN.

Front Row asked him questions regarding being profiled in ESPN Films’ “Keepers Of The Streak” – the story of four photographers who each shot the first 48 Super Bowls (at the time); on shooting in the Los Angeles Coliseum, where on Aug. 13 ESPN will telecast the first Los Angeles Rams’ home game played there in decades; and ESPN The Magazine’sThe Body Issue,” which is on newsstands now.

Jon McLeod produced the video.
