Body of Work 2012


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.
