Its Olympic fever time again and the city of London is to play host to the masses of athletes and tourists to join and view this legendary and age old event of stamina and sportsmanship. The 2012 Olympics to be held from 27 July to 12 August 2012. Appropriately in spirit London based photographer Oli Kellet has just produced his latest photography endeavour which is a set of mock posters of the 2012 Olympics. These posters showcasing a variety of men and women athletes each a member of Team Vodkovia, that depict a certain sport type with unreal and amplified physical characteristics that ‘enhance’ their natural talents.
Kellet comments to Feature Shoot in a recent interview ‘The idea for “Team Vodkovia” started in the spring of 2011 when Olympic fever was really beginning over here in London. I thought it would be good to get involved and would be fun to invent some athletes who were specifically matched to the event they would participate in. Brave New World Style.’
Oli Kellet is a London based photographer and has worked with an array of agencies as an art director, from which he resigned from the industry to pursue his career in photography. Kellet also has a few other projects showing his unique style as photographer, definitely worthwhile to go have a peek at his work.
