Katherine Green: 1948 Olympians

0 Love It
Save it

An exhibition by Katherine Green who, for the past six years, has been meeting and documenting the 1948 British Olympic Team. The show includes photographic images and oral histories from the time the Olympics were last held in London, revealing stark contrasts between then and now; London was recovering from war, athletes trained on rations while working full-time, had to take unpaid leave to compete and many had to hand sew their own kits.
