As many of you probably agree, some of the photos of Olympic athletes thus far have been either strange or downright bad. It relieves me to find that there are some commissioned photographs that don't make me cringe, but rather put a smile on my face. Both TIME and Women's Health commissioned photographs that, in my opinion, really nailed the "Olympic Photograph."
These photos of olympians by Martin Schoeller are, in my opinion, the best yet released.
