A tribute to the 'independent and bad-ass women' of snowboarding, with featured snowboarders sharing their personal stories. Illustrated with stunning snowboarding & mountain imagery.
Heroes: Women in Snowboarding is the product of two years' work by photographer Jérôme Tanon, following some of the most dedicated female snowboarders around the world. It is a declaration of love, highlighting the culture, passion and dedication of female snowboarders. Though women's snowboarding has developed radically over the last decade, few photographs celebrate the champions of the sport. Over two winter seasons, Tanon traveled the world to meet several snowboarders, hear their stories and photograph them in the streets, the parks and the back-country.The sheer passion they put into their sport was instantly obvious. Shared here are personal stories and artworks by the snowboarders themselves.
