Much like the journey undertaken to reach physical perfection by each of the outstanding athletes portrayed in this exhibition, the road to realise TEAMPLAYERS has a been a long one with many twists and turns along the way. First proposed in 2010, the project has undergone various changes but the core concept has always remained the same…to celebrate endeavour and commitment. TEAMPLAYERS marks the years of hard work these athletes have put into becoming amongst the best in their particular sport. As individuals they are amazing, together as a team they are incredible….they are TEAMPLAYERS.

The TEAMPLAYERS project, conceived and produced by broad daylight, has captured ten rising sporting stars. Each of the athletes was photographed standing on a plinth in a Scottish landscape with locations that ranged from countryside to urban and industrial. Their clothing is an indication of their sport and the stances adopted reflect the physical and mental attitude require to compete at this level. The settings are deliberately incongruous and mostly, distinctly Scottish. The viewer is being asked to take time to consider the nature of what they are seeing, not merely a record of time and place but hopefully providing some insight into the determination, character, ideals and aspirations that make each athlete worthy of their place in this legacy exhibition.
