Stroke of Genius

A compelling history of Australian batsman Victor Trumper (1877-1915) and the photograph that changed cricket. A brilliant attacking stroke maker, Trumper revolutionised Australian and English cricket before the First World War; he is remembered as one of the most useful and stylish players of cricket’s ‘Golden Age’. Photographed c.1905 by George Beldam in ‘Jumping Out’ - caught in mid stroke, the personification of cricketing grace, skill and power, about to hit the ball long and hard – the pioneering ‘action-photograph’ made Trumper a pictorial icon and is, arguably, the most famous photograph in the history of cricket. This fascinating history tells us not only about the man in the picture but also charts the changes in how we have watched and imagined the game we know today.
