To tell the story of the last Roland-Garros tournament in pictures, the French Tennis Federation has broken with the tradition of the vintage official book and offered readers an innovative artistic exercise. Far from a chronological retrospective, this book is the work of one of the great names in photography, British photographer Steve Hiett. It is prefaced by journalist and man of letters Philippe Labro.
With daring, subtlety and complete freedom, Steve Hiett has cast his eye as a fashion photographer over the world of Roland-Garros. His work with flash and his mastery of color make this magnificently illustrated book a unique journey to the heart of the tournament, revealing the backstage, the architecture, the public, the courts... everything that makes Roland-Garros one of the international tennis tournaments that thrills the whole world.
