Gymnasts - NDGT
This project was created with the National Danish Gymnastic Team between 1998 and 2002. It can best be described as a collaborative dance between the photographers and the subjects.
Over the course of several years this troupe of athletes became enthusiastic subjects for a series of photographs based on the four elements: Earth, Air, Water and Fire.
The project consists of images which are a stylised abstraction of the sporting ideal. Far removed form any thoughts of training or competition, these images are redolent of classical statues brought to life.
"Jonathan Anderson & Edwin Low have a distinguished sense for perspective, lighting and lines. I think this project enforces how fantastically the picture tells a story and, more amazingly, how Jonathan & Edwin demonstrate the process of storytelling. I'm very happy to have been a part of their journey." Neils Henryk Neilsen, Head Coach, National Danish Gymnastic Team (World tour 1997-1998)
