Celebrating the Sydney Olympic Games, this book is a tribute to the great Olympic athletes past and present. Jason Bell has spent the last three years travelling to meet and photograph the leading sportsmen and women. This has given him unique access to their private worlds enabling him to present a side of them rarely seen by their audience. The photographs from the book will be exhibited at the Olympic Village during the games and at the Commonwealth Institute from September - December 2000. A magnificent work illustrated with 90 full-colour plates.
