I work next door to Exposure PR, one of London‘s biggest public relations agencies – in fact they occupy most of our street for a start so it’s not hard to miss their reception as I walk past everyday. That’s not just because one of the receptionists looks like Beyoncé, more to do with the artwork displayed in their Exposure Gallery space. It’s currently occupied by an great series of photographs and image diaries depicting different sports and players set against an urban backdrop of London. One of the best things about the Olympics has been the way this city has embraced sports in past few years and photographers Matt Cottis and Dylan Collard have done a great job of capturing people enjoying their sport. More on the reverse.

I haven’t even spoken about the quality of the photography, something so real and crisp about all the images. It makes you feel as if you’re there yourself, embracing the sport, neighbourhood and the people. I’d love to know what they shot this on, it does look like a SLR with a little bit of Lightroom post-processing.
The sport, the architecture and the neighbourhood may change, but the common thread binding these photographs together are the people. Wherever the place, whatever the weather and whatever the sport, without them the game ceases to exist.
