Photographer Sophy Holland was commissioned by author Haley Shapley to photograph 23 amazing female athletes in the new book Strong Like Her. The athletes ranged from lifting, running, swimming, climbing, martial arts, basketball, dance and more. Together, Sophy and Haley traveled to multiple cities over many months to reach all their subjects and document the history of women in all forms of strength and sport.
Shout out to Gallery Books, Sophy’s assistant Kendall Lynne Gough, the epic teams who worked with Sophy on all the shoots, and of course the 23 amazing and beautiful athletes below.
The book is available on amazon, bookshop.org and Gallery Press.
