Body Types Of Top-tier Athletes

In modern day Western society we have a very specific body image of what ‘fit’ looks like, i.e just look at the front cover of ‘Men’s Health’

New York-based photographer Howard Schatz wants to stop the illusion of those stereotypes up by showing how many types of (very fit) bodies are required for the numerous sports that we humans take part in.

For his book Athlete, Schatz has photographed all kinds of Olympic and pro athletes with the goal of displaying “the astonishing array of physical perfection required for their particular sports.”
