John Huet is no stranger to the Olympics, having photographed at everyÂ SummerÂ andÂ WinterÂ Olympic Games for the past 13 years. Last year John brought his passion and exceptional eye to theÂ 2014 Special OlympicsÂ USA GamesÂ where he found endless inspiration in the athleticism, pride, camaraderie, determination and joy of these Olympic athletes.
TheÂ 2015Â Special Olympics World Summer GamesÂ (in partnership with Bank of America) will be held in Los Angeles July 25 â August 2, bringing with it 7,000 athletes from around the world. For Bank of Americaâs #passtheflame campaign,Â JohnÂ had the privilege of photographing several of these Olympic athletes, each owningÂ their field (or court, pool, gym, course, etc.). Weâre so excited to share these inspiring portraits of some of 2015âs competitors. Good luck to all! Let the Games begin!
