Angela Jimenez: ‘I’m working on my second book, Racing Age, a documentary series on fierce and amazing masters track & field athletes of retirement age and over. Please consider supporting my Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign to publish a book about these tremendous athletes. You can pre-order the book and get other rewards by backing the project.

I started this work in 2007, while finishing Welcome Home. This summer, I hit the track again to make new work. Met amazing people at the National Senior Games in my Minneapolis hometown. Wrote and photographed a piece about the World Masters Championships in Lyon, France for The New York Times sports section and the LENS blog: New York Times sports section. Sunday August 16, 2015.’
