Athletes 2012

This morning I photographed my 20th and final athlete to be included in a personal project I've been working on this year. The project, which features college athletes and their bodies, was a daunting task to take on - from contacting the individuals, coordinating schedules and figuring out locations - but rewarding in what I learned, the people I met and the experience over all.

I have to give a special shout out to my three assistants, Piper, Brimley and Covi, who were an incredible help. They lugged around equipment, held things, laughed when I said something funny (intentionally and unintentionally), and endured some of the hottest days of the year.

Thanks ladies.
