John Huet has been photographing the Summer and Winter Olympic Games for the past 13 years. In 2014,  John brought his passion and exceptional eye to the Special Olympics USA Games for the very first time.

This year,  John has teamed up with Bank of America for the Special Olympics World Summer Games.  Held in Los Angeles, the event brings over 7,000 athletes together from around the world. As part of Bank of America’s #PassTheFlame campaign, John photographed several of these athletes in their element, portraying their inspiring athleticism, camaraderie, and determination.

Check out a few of the lovely portraits below. Great job John!
