Elton John AIDS Foundation
There have been a lot of athletes who posed naked for a certain cause in the past. Back in 2009 some of the most beautiful sports star posed naked in a black and white portrait which is a project of photographers Anderson and Low. This project is created to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Some of the athletic champions that posed naked in this project are Thierry Henry, Matt Dawson, Terrell Owens, and Venus Williams. The portraits were displayed in the National Portrait Gallery in London back in March 8, 2009. This project took years to prepare and the photographers aim to raise the awareness among people on the issue of HIV/AIDS. The portraits of the athletes symbolize not only their beauty, but their humanity and vulnerability as well. The event was a success and many HIV/AIDS victims were given a big amount of support. The title of the project was called “Champions.” This photo exhibit also showcased some of the never before seen nude portrait of some of the most famous athletes taken by Anderson & Low. They went to three continents to shoot the hot athletes. It took the entire production team a few years to finish this photo-shoot making the outcome truly successful. There were 138 images of black and white naked portraits of hot athletes showcased in the “Champions.”
