In 1960 the French photographer Raymond Depardon becomes member of the Dalmas press agency and among the events he covers we can find the Olympic games. Depardon doesn't pretend to be a sport specialist but sport helps him to improve a lot. For shooting sport events he learns with sportsmen to have the good watch at the good time. We can see that towards the Olympic game pictures he has made. There is not stretcher around the pictures because the purpose of Depardon is to immortalize a period of time like the African - American athletes protesting with a black glove against social discrimination (Mexico 1968) or the Münich hostages (1972).
