The Nexus of Art and Sports Photography

The world has collected and photographed thousands of beautiful works of art going back to antiquity. But that documentation pales beside sports photography, where dozen of professional photographers are catching every minute of every game, race, or other competition. This extreme documentation is what makes a unique Twitter account like ArtButMakeItSports possible. For every classical painting, there will eventually be a sports action photo that accidentally recreates the scene. Sometimes they are spookily close.

You have to wonder at the work that goes into finding and recognizing these matchups. The person that runs the Twitter account is taking submissions, so that must be a great help.  

You can follow the Twitter account ArtButMakeItSports here, and see an archive of past matchups at Instagram. -via Everlasting Blort
