Flash: Australian Athletes in Focus

Flash: Australian Athletes in FocusThe National Portrait Gallery's photographic exhibition Flash: Australian Athletes in Focus explores various interpretations of Australian sporting men and women. The exhibition brings together the work of five Australian photographers, drawn from around Australia. The artists, working in the medium most associated with sport, are specially commissioned for the exhibition. While some of the photographers investigate the personal dimensions of elite athletes, others focus on the social aspects of sport and on particular groups within the broader Australian sporting community.
