Photog Joe Klamar Explains His Controversial Olympic Portraits
Ever since AFP photog Joe Klamar’s portraits of U.S. Olympic team athletes emerged, people have been trying to explain why they looked…so bad. Some said Klamer’s photos were purposely degrading; others said they made a statement about the limitations of photo ops. Now Klamer himself explains on AFP’s website why he shot the pictures as he did: He arrived at the photo event unprepared, with only two cameras, three lenses, one flash, and a laptop. “I really had no idea that there would be a possibility for setting up a studio,” he says.
