American photographers John Huet and David Burnett were commissioned by the International Olympic Committee to cover the London Olympic Games of 2012 and were given considerable artistic and technical freedom. The result is a series of great photos that capture moments in time: images with a story behind them and pictures that contribute to our Olympic heritage. This volume features stunning behind-the-scenes photographs of Olympic athletes preparing for and executing their incredible physical feats. These unconventional images show the intensity of training and preparation and the mental state of the Olympians. The full colour photos are accompanied by detailed commentaries by the photographers, describing the thought and planning behind the image, and the exact moment when the images were captured. Bilingual edition (English and French).
