Want to relive the Olympic glory of Jessica Ennis, Tom Daley, the Brownlee brothers and the rest of TeamGB? Jonathan Glynn-Smith’s new photography exhibition, A Singular Eye, is just the ticket.

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
