Pictures from the Sydney Olympics, of people who didn’t win.
I’ve never heard of this project before. I don’t actually like most of the pictures, purely on an aesthetic level – it’s not my thing – but the concept is a fascinating one. I’m not sure whether all of the people actually did come fourth, but obviously they’re people who didn’t place. They, therefore, will basically be forgotten by history, unless they’re on the way up (or down): if this was their only chance, they have blown it. And they usually wouldn’t have their photo taken.
I wonder how the Sydney Olympic committee felt about this? Since I think they were the ones who commissioned the work.
