The Athlete is the product of a collaboration between photographers Jonathan Anderson and Edwin Low. The full body of work consists of over 120 Black and White prints of athletes from Asia, Europe, the United States and Australia. During this year's summer Olympics, the work will be on display in Sydney at the Byron Mapp Gallery and in New York at Wessell O'Connor Gallery. The work has also been exhibited this summer at The National Portrait Gallery of Australia.

Anderson & Low, who met while sharing darkroom space, have worked as a photographic team since 1990. Their photographic collaborations encompass the realms of portraiture, still life, nudes and architecture. Their commissioned work has appeared in various newspapers, magazines and commercial venues.
