"The Athlete" - Understanding body type diversity

"The Athlete" is a collection of photographs of various Olympic athletes by Howard Schartz and Beverly Ornstein.

The author of this blog post said it best...
"This photoshoot serves as awesome reference reminding us artists that strong bodies come in all kinds of shapes and sizes and muscles show up in different ways. It also helps us keep in mind that not everyone who is fit is also lean. There’s often a layer of fat over the muscles, making them less visible for some....

Reminder to self and others: fitness does not always equal perfect washboard abs."

The entire collection consists of about 100 athletes from various different sports, take a look at some of the pictures here...

  1. Thanks for putting these in Picasa, it makes them much easier to view (for those who may not have already done so, click on the slide show to view in more detail; names, sport, height and weight display). I'm going to review with DH and pick out my ideal for my body.
