WALTER “KILLER” KOWALSKI
BOOK (112 pages, illustrated). LIMITED EDITION
$47.50 $15.00, autographed copy $60.00
In the middle of his pro-wrestling career, the legendary Walter "Killer"
Kowalski, eight-time world champion, decided that he could far surpass the
bland promo photographs that wrestling promoters used to advertise their
events. For many years, he took his trusty Hasselblad camera and associated
lighting and backdrop equipment to many venues in the USA and overseas.
Walter would not only shoot his contemporaries in classic poses, he would
also photograph "local color" and "targets of opportunity" -- from a study of
insect behavior to the continuing signs of destruction in post-war Hiroshima.
His book is a rare collection of his work. Each page provides a high definition
reproduction of one of his photographs (both color & black and white),
together with a brief description of the circumstances of the shot and any
special techniques used. The book includes a piece by Evan Ginzburg, editor
of “Wrestling Then & Now.”
