Your subject stands there.
Ready. The question, "what do you want me to do?" soon follows. That's how it
usually begins. But with this project I was able to turn
that question around and ask "What do you do? As an athlete, what
types of motions do you go through?" And then I would have them show me.
Body of Work 2012 is the result of a
personal project I worked on throughout 2012. A series of photographs
that highlight the college athlete and their body, the project features
twenty athletes from a variety of sports - doing what they do.
