Join ESPN Photographers, Editors and very special guests for an evening you will never forget! ESPN The Magazine’s BODY Issue was born in October of 2009 with a singular mission: to celebrate the incredible power of the athletic form.

With the help of 20 brave athletes, including Serena Williams, Adrian Peterson, Dwight Howard and an equally elite group of photographers, the issue immediately established itself as a cultural force.

Since then, BODY has evolved into more than a stunning annual portfolio of images. It’s become a powerful storytelling platform, a trusted forum for athletes to share not only their strengths, but also their vulnerabilities.
