About the Book

American photographers John Huet and David Burnett were commissioned by the International Olympic Committee  to cover the London Games of 2012 in their own way, with considerable artistic and technical freedom. The result is a series of great photos that capture moments in time: images with a story behind them, and pictures that contribute to our Olympic heritage.
