TIME magazine did a tremendous job with their newest issue. The July 30, 2012 issue features three different Olympic athletes, two of which are females. Popular track-star, Lolo Jones is shown sprinting out of the blocks on one edition. Gymnast Gabby Douglas is featured in a beautiful, graceful image on another version. Swimmer Ryan Lochte is shown performing a backstroke on the rendition of his cover.
All three covers are beautifully done. The photography was captured by high-profile New York photographer Martin Schoeller. Time also has a variety of covers for their International issues, which are also very well done. Check out the feature on Martin’s 2012 U.S. Olympian Portraits on TIME.COM. You can also see more images and web exclusive content on the site.
These two images are great. Lolo hurdling a dog and Gabby stretching at the fridge of her host family. Great stuff! See more here on TIME.com.
