About the Interviews

This project is part of the personal work of photographer Gavin Kemp, the aim is to interview exceptional athletes, a term being used with the widest possible definition to include sportsmen and women of all generations. All those taking part have competed at either the World Championships, the Olympics or Paralympics.

The subject is however not their sport, rather it’s something at the centre of their lives, that is either directly relevant to them or is a socially important issue of which they have first-hand experience. The hope is in sharing their experience and knowledge it may be of benefit to others.
