Everyday Olympian documents people involved in local community sports in the West Midlands, be it a 12 year old swimmer or 30 year old boxer. These are the people that make up the tapestry of sports that thrive at all levels across the country.
Funded by Kalaboration and the Cultural Olympiad , Everyday Olympian was exhibited widely in 2012 including The Drum, Centro buses in Coventry, exhibited in South Korea and the Foto8 Summershow, London. It was inspired by London 2012 Olympics.
Boora used a travelling backdrop and studio kit to photograph local sports people immediately after having participated in training or competition. All work was shot on Mamiya RZ67 medium format film between March - July 2012.
