Channel Your Inner Champion with Mitchel Gray’s ‘Bodies in Action’ Exhibition
In 2014, photographer Mitchel Gray developed a concept aimed at illustrating the musculature and grace underneath the equipment, padding and uniforms of elite athletes.
The result–a uniquely artful photo series titled, Bodies in Action–employs distinctive lighting and a “double shot” of the athlete to capture the symmetry, precision and perfection of champions. With many of the subjects being Olympians, Gray’s images are on display at the Elga Wimmer PCC Gallery in Chelsea, New York City to coincide with this summer’s Rio Games.

Mitchel Gray is a renowned creative professional based in NYC. He is credited with two best selling books, The Lingerie Book and Lingerie Fantasies (St. Martin’s Press), and has illustrated many more in the active lifestyle, health and fitness fields.

Meanwhile, his fine art has been exhibited in galleries across the U.S. and in Europe.
About the Exhibition
With dozens of images of spectacular athletes in motion, Bodies in Action is undeniably inspiring, and a testimony to Gray’s expertise.
