Powerful photographs by internationally acclaimed photographers Anderson & Low of young men and women who are training for both the sports field and the battlefield while studying at America’s three famed military academies – West Point, Annapolis and Colorado Springs. Athlete/Warrior contains arresting juxtapositions of cadets in their military dress – from formal to fatigues – and in the uniforms of their chosen sports, including swimming, track events, football, gymnastics and basketball, among others, reveal subtle similarities and differences between the roles assumed by such disciplined and dedicated individuals. A modern interpretation of the hero as represented by the classically inspired iconography of the athlete and the warrior which accompanies an exhibition showing in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta. Handsomely designed and beautifully produced.
