Exhibition overview

Making use of his older cameras as models, Herman has stylishly recreated images of sporting events in an abstract and surreal, yet striking manner, capturing the sensation of speed and the brief but stunning aspect of light that is so often a feature of sports. Each photograph is meticulously prepared and calibrated to best represent a sport or aspect of the Games. In keeping with the Olympic Spirit, the photos serve to remind one about how even the smallest fragment of light can transform an otherwise unremarkable object into an icon of glory and peace.

The exhibition is an homage to the friendship and camaraderie which the Games are built upon. They exemplify the competitive, yet sportsmanlike attitude of the athletes who all strive for excellence and glory in the Games.
