Caught In Action... 20 Years of West Indies Cricket Photography



Caught In Action – 20 Years of West Indies Cricket Photography is the work of legendary Barbadian photographer Gordon Brooks. Brooks has been the Caribbean’s leading cricket photographer for many years. He is renowned for capturing breath-taking cricket photos from venues around world.

This book, which was published in 2003, is his first photo documentary. It showcases the very best of his work many of which has never been publish before. It is a masterpiece portraying two contrasting decades of West Indies triumphs and disappointments.

From the moment you open this hard cover treasure you’ll love it. Even the title, says it all as the book features some of the most out-standing photographs of the dominant era, as well as the slide from glory, including

  • Malcolm Marshall having New Zealand's Jeremy Coney in a leaping tangle as he tried to avoid a lifter.
  • Joel Garner with a stare of death and the intensity of a focused warrior firing at a hastily evasive Ken Rutherford.
  • Gordon Greenidge like a champion thoroughbred belting a pull away as his eyes follow the ball all the way to the boundary from behind a pair of sunglasses that does a poor job in trying to hide his unmasked joy.
  • Viv Richards, miles down the track and lifting some unfortunate fast bowler from the Kensington Oval to somewhere else in Barbados.
  • A stunned Geoff Boycott's off-stump cart-wheeling to the wicketkeeper courtesy of the final delivery of that famous Michael Holding over.
  • To the very last of the outstretched arms of Curtly Ambrose waving goodbye at the end of his career.
Watch the story of West Indies Cricket unfold as these beautiful black and white glossy photos all do justice to that often repeated old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words.
