Olympians: From London to Rio
Past display archive
28 July - 15 September 2016
by Kate Peters
This selection of portraits celebrates this international sporting event with photographs by Kate Peters of key figures from the 2012 Games who are competing again this year. Set against a black background, Peters’s bold portraits assert their sitters’ physical presence, strength and determination. Anderson & Low’s portraits are derived from an extensive body of portraits commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery to mark London 2012, which resulted in 115 works by seven photographers.
