Exhibition -The Olympic Games through a Lens

Friday 8th July 2011 9am - Friday 26th August 2011 6pm 107 Charing Cross Road Exhibition

What's the most famous photograph in Olympic history? It depends on who you
ask. Some might say Dorando Pietri staggering across the finish line, helped by
officials, at the end of the Marathon at the London 1908 Games. Others might
nominate Usain Bolt showboating as he wins the 100m, metres ahead of the
opposition, at Beijing 2008. And others still the Black Power salute given by
Tommie Smith and John Carlos on the podium at Mexico City 1968. All these
photos are displayed here - and appear inside the covers of Olympic Games
Through a Lens, alongside others that typify the spirit of the Olympic Games.
