How does a professional figure skater's body compare to hockey player? What about a professional rhythmic gymnast's body compared with a weightlifter? Photographer Howard Schatz chose to showcase these body-image differences in his photo series, "Athlete," which can be purchased on Amazon.
The series juxtaposes some of the world's top athletes donning matching underwear and oiled up in order to create an objective perspective of all of them together. They pose in front of a black background and are scaled proportionately to highlight the similarities and differences. Each athlete's name, sport, height and weight are listed below their image.
