'BROUGHT TO LIGHT'
Brought to light is a photographic series dedicated to Australian athletes who participate in under exposed sports. Many of these athletes fall short of the media’s spotlight, although their sporting achievements reach an international level.
The series focuses on athletes who compete for Australia at the top of their respected fields & receive either little or no media coverage, funding or endorsements. Often these athletes participate at a National & International level at their own expense, in addition to sacrificing time from their careers, homes & families.
Despite the hardships these athletes face, one common trait found throughout the athletes featured in this series is their passion for their sport. These athletes travel the world competiting, for themselves, their sport & their country, & wouldn’t trade that for any fame or financial gain.
These athletes, already hugely successful, range from Australian Olympians & future Olympic potentials, to National & International champions.
