Featuring an essay by Zev Borow and an interview with Kathy Ryan, 2*4*6*8: American Cheerleaders And Football Players is primarily a serio-comic photographic survey by Brian Finke of the American subculture of megaphones, pom-poms, back-bends, tackles, and touchdowns of football players and cheerleaders. Showcased are the crowd-leasing, stunt-building, skirt-flipping girls and the uniform clad gladiators of adolescent football as played out in almost every highschool in the country. The images were captured by Brian Finke's photography over a two-year period as he went from camp to competition in pursuit of the top teams and the squads of girls who cheer them on. 2*4*6*8: American Cheerleaders And Football Players is a superb pictorial in celebration of an American phenomenon played out on and off the highschool football fields with a passion and intensity that belies our ordinary notions of adolescent youth.
