Olympic Spirit

As the 2012 Olympic Games take place in London, Olympic spirit is rousing the nation, indeed the world, and I myself am enthralled.

The Olympics is symbolic of human progress and advancement; a recognition of elitism and the ultimate test of athleticism. When one hundredth of a second or a fraction of a millimeter can mark the margin between victory and defeat, state-of-the-art technology and scientific development now play a crucial role in sport. Yet no matter how technical and meticulous Olympic sports become, the effortless beauty of the body and graceful glory of the games continue to inspire and exhilarate.

Indicative of Ancient Greek origins, this stunning Olympic-themed photo shoot by photographer Joanna Kustra embodies the timeless, mythological nostalgia of the Olympic Games. Celebrating natural human movement, and highlighting the achievement of the human body, Kustra's Olympians are empowering, statuesque and God-like.
