Journey to the Podium

Over the last three years Essex County council have paired together artists with potential London 2012 sportspeople. Last year I worked with the gymnast Reiss Beckford. It was a real pleasure and honour being allowed to photograph and document his training schedule. This resulted in the body of work "Body Mind Commitment" .

This work has now been selected to be exhibited at The House of Parliament during August, more news on this soon. After the Parliament show the work will be exhibited  Basildon Sporting Village.




Visit for more information about this project, and the artists who took part.
