Torch Relay Photography

← Back to the Portfolio

I donated my entire 2009 holidays to travel with the 2010 Olympic Torch Relay team for three weeks as a documentary photographer. Some people thought I was crazy to take a working vacation where I slept on hotel floors of friends and ate my own meals, mostly made up of granola bars, fruit, dried fruit, nuts, berries and pizza buns. I ran alongside just over a thousand torch bearers (running approximately 10 km a day) photographing them through Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.
