Exhibition by Katherine Green


1948 was the last time the Olympics was held in London. The contrast is stark; London was recovering from war, athletes weren't paid, were training on rations whilst working full-time and most had to hand sew their own kits. For six years Katherine Green has been photographing and recording interviews with British Olympians from the 1948 Games. Now in their 80s and 90s, they share their extraordinary stories in this touring exhibition.
