Bettina von Zwehl was invited to make a series of portraits of athletes on location and develop an approach that would give the viewer a sense of personal encounter with her sitters. Travelling across the country with her assistant and husband David Robinson, von Zwehl photographed the athletes in settings where they live or train. Robinson's control of light and von Zwehl's concentrated engagement with her subjects result in meditative observations of face, physique and mood.
