Joe Klamar, chief photographer for Agence France Presse, created a minor online skirmish with his portraits of American Olympic team members, including swimmer Michael Phelps, gymnast Julie Zetlin and boxer Errol Spence. Some saw the gritty, hastily staged shots—snapped in May, at the U.S. Olympics Media Summit in Dallas, Texas—as an affront to the dignity of our Olympians; others praised Klamar for showing the humanity of these awe-inspiring (and widely photographed) athletes. See which side of the controversy you fall on at this exhibit of the portraits that coincides with the games.
