Right to Play and The Exposure Project 2008
In July of this year we photographed Sarah & Dan Leo’s wedding. Ben Pegna who played for the London Wasps rugby team with Dan Leo asked us to cover The Exposure Project 2008 auction event. The proceeds from the auction would be going towards the charity Right To Play. Right To Play is an international humanitarian organization that uses sport and play programs to improve health, develop life skills, and foster peace for children and communities in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the world. The charity is supported by an international team of top athletes from over 40 different countries. To read more about the charity please visit www.righttoplay.com
Throughout 2008, a number of the charity’s athlete ambassadors, including the UK’s number one tennis champion Andy Murray, Olympic gold Medalist Tim Brabants and London Wasps and Somoan International Rugby player Dan Leo, have been taking part in the Exposure Project and capturing photographs of their year in sport to give people and exclusive and rare glimpse into the lives of top class athletes at high profile events. A selection of the photographs where auctioned off of the night but there are still prints available to purchase from the website.
