What's the best way to remember sports that have fallen out of Olympic favor? By styling up some models (or de-clothing them) and having them be silly while filming on Super 8. Or at least that's a way. Photographer and filmmaker KT Auleta has teamed up with Nowness to create tributes to baseball, tug of war, and racquet ball. What she promises they will show you: "I wanted to show six happy, beautiful people having fun." What they actually shows you: Strategically placed baseball mits over strategically naked body parts, models tossing baseballs up and down, raquetball dances, the can-can, some awesome sports fashion like baseball caps, pants (with no tops), striped onesie uniforms, and raquetball whites.
