Photographer Neil Gunner has just released his book Into Battle: The Roller Derby Experience in Photos and Interviews. I've had the privilege of working with Neil these last few seasons while shooting for Toronto Roller Derby at The Bunker, Downsview Park. Into Battle has been a long term project of his that reflects both his style of photography and his approach to story telling.
At over 200 pages of photos and interviews, Neil has presented an in-depth look at what fuels the passion of so many athletes who make Roller Derby such a fascinating sport to watch.
The Derby Nerd, a Toronto based writer and massive fan of Roller Derby, has published an in-depth review of Neil's book on his blog.
Into Battle: The Roller Derby Experience in Photos and Interviews is available to purchase online or at Toronto Roller Derby matches. It is a perfect gift for any sports lover.
