Award-winning art photographers Anderson & Low have created an astonishingly moving record of the lives of Chinese gymnasts as they strive to achieve their potential as well as the levels expected of them. It is a giant of a book hand-bound in the traditional Chinese manner with wrap-around hard covers that is a work of art in itself. However, it is the subtle beauty of the tones and compositions that evoke deep emotion in the viewer and remain indelibly imprinted on the memory.

Never before have the Chinese authorities allowed such complete cooperation to photographers: they were allowed unparalleled freedom of movement and access to any gymnast. This level of intimacy with Chinese athletes, coaches, physiotherapists and other support staff is unprecedented. As a result, this is a story being told for the very first time.

For weeks at a time Anderson & Low became a part of the lives of the gymnasts as they trained, photographing whatever and wherever they wished. The result is a unique and candid insight into the pain and joy, the exuberance and utter exhaustion, the hardships and the triumph of these remarkable people’s lives. ENDURE is a phenomenal work of art photography at its finest and a collector’s edition limited to 750 copies.
