The SMJ’s are looking for images for a forthcoming exhibition about politics and the Olympics. We’re looking for two kinds of image: (1) images that illustrate some of the controversy surrounding the urban development that goes with the Olympics (see above 0r here). and (2) images that show how Londoners often identify with more than one nation – lots of us will be supporting two, three, four different countries this summer. Probably not quite what we’re looking for but, in 2005 South African photographer Phillipe Sibelly photographed Londoners from all 202 Olympic nations. The Photographers Gallery are now doing something similar.
