For a photographer who approaches the body frankly and without excuse, here is a surprising collection of portraits of Chinese athletes ready for the competition of the Olympic Games. This subject is both strict and taken head on.
These men and women, posing against a white backdrop, centered in an amazing sobriety form a huge mosaic of tiny characters. Rancinan builds an allegory of the athlete poised between individual solitude and combat..the building of the national image and victory.
