From the 14th September, visitors to Eleven (an exclusive gallery space located near Victoria) will be able to see portraits of top British athletes photographed over a period of 16 months as they prepared for and performed in the London 2012 Olympic Games.
From Tom Daley just breaking the surface of the pool (pictured above) to a moody sky lingering above the beach volleyball court, Glynn-Smith captured a culmination of moments which all contributed to the splendor and success of Great Britain’s best sportsmen.
One particularly striking image in Glynn-Smith’s portfolio focuses on Jessica Ennis’ legs, the core of her strength and ability to perform, instead of her portrait which has made her increasingly recognisable – especially since her unforgettable victory on Super Saturday.
A Singular Eye by Jonathan Glynn-Smith will be on display from the 14th to 29th September at Eleven, 11 Eccleston Street, SW1W 9LW. For more details and opening times, visit elevenfineart.com
