Athletes: a commission awarded by the Akron Art museum

When Gay Games IX (a global sporting event where no one is excluded on the basis of sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, political belief(s), athletic/artistic ability, physical challenge, age, or health status) came to Cleveland, I was selected as a photographer to create images. These portraits were submitted daily for a virtual gallery and were made before or after competition of Sailing, Hockey, Open Water Swim, Soccer, Rock climbing, and Rowing.
