The trek through the snow, the burst from the warming shack, the blast of cold air—the wonder of the outdoor game is stunningly captured in Pond Hockey: Frozen Moments. From the creators of Pond Hockey, the best-selling documentary, comes a new oversized photo book chronicling the open-air game from the harbors of Helsinki to the snow-capped Rockies. Featured artist Nicholas Wynia, and a collection of photographers worldwide, capture the winter playgrounds where dedicated shinny enthusiasts spend their winter hours—pine-treed ponds, outdoor rinks, backyard ice sheets, and mountain lakes. In a journey through the raw elements of hockeyland, Wynia's lens discovers the rare breed of outdoor skaters that embody the true heart of the game.

You're reviewing: Pond Hockey

"Part of the genius of Nicholas Wynia’s evocative photographs is the way they capture the magic of those transitory, winter-bright afternoons." —Chip McGrath, former editor, New York Book Review

"The photographs are a perfect mix of longing and joy, carefree skaters playing the game they love until once again, the ice is gone." — Danny Wilcox Frazier, photographer, Driftless

Tommy Haines, JT Haines, and Andrew Sherburne are Northland Films, a story-telling collective producing documentary features, shorts, and books. Their feature film, Pond Hockey—called “the best and purest hockey film ever” by ESPN’s John Buccigross—explores the changing culture of sports and the resurgence of the outdoor game. The group’s next visit to the pond came in the form of Ben and Lucy Play Pond Hockey, an award-winning illustrated children’s book. Now they set out on a photographic journey to once again evoke the wonder of the game in their new book, Pond Hockey: Frozen Moments.
