Even the Losers….

Even the losers….

Yup that’s what I think of. That song as I’m going through all of these shots taken over nearly a month when I come upon these looks of devastation, loss of control, incomprehension.  Some were captured by accident while I and the camera were focused on the winners, others too obvious to ignore.

For every winner, there are dozens of athletes who made it to the Olympics and did not win a gold medal.  Each and everyone of them probably has a moment of disappointment before they remember what they have accomplished  just to be at the Olympics.

This is the third post in a series of blog entries about my experiences at the 2012 London Olympics.  An overall view of  images are now posted on my website.  Images that appear here may or may not be on the website and images from the website might not appear on my blog, so take a look at both.  Head on over to my gallery of Olympics images here if you want to see more pictures.

Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.  There is much to be thankful for.

Thanks, Jason

2012 London Olympics – Invasion of the Bubble People

I’m back from the Olympics and reliving all of the spectacle and events I was able to witness and photograph. One of the greatest things about this project, and working for the International Olympic Committee,  is that I was able to witness some of the not-so-obvious and scenes behind the scenes. One of my favorites was shooting diving from an underwater perspective.  The divers take on this look of another species after plunging into the clean blue. Sort of  like their own underwater tribe…. The Bubble People.

Cliff Diving in Boston Harbor?

The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series brought 14 divers to Boston to jump 80′ off the ICA’s roof into Boston Harbor! Pictures of the action and the fans. Look for divers in the first 5 pictures. Love that dirty water…
