Champions by Anderson & Low

Champions is a charitable project of naked black & white portraits by Anderson & Low that benefits the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The project features stars such as Thierry Henry, Venus Williams, Matt Dawson, and Billie Jean King taking it all off to raise awareness of the global issue of HIV/AIDS.

The press release explains, “Transcending cultural and socio-economic boundaries the universal appeal of these athletes made them the ideal subjects for this project. Their nudity in the portraits is symbolic, illustrating both their physical beauty and prowess alongside their vulnerability and humanity.”

Images from the project are displayed at the National Portrait Gallery in London until 8th March 2009 with free admission. A book containing 138 images from the project has recently been released as well. You can buy the book here.
