Swimmer portraits is a study – of body and form – of the UK’s leading paralympic swimmers. Photographed at various swimming events such as European and World Championships, each of the subjects body language and postures are observed during interviews taken shortly after competing in races and then replicated in the images in an attempt to represent each swimmer more in tune with their natural self’s, away from their media personas.
