Oksana Masters: Paralympic Rower. Photograph by Martin Schoeller

A gallery of striking portraits of olympian atheletes. Of all the sculpted bodies in the gallery, Oksana Masters’ picture goes beyond the power of the body, to the power of the mind, and probably redefines the body itself  for the modern age.

Growing up in a very poor orphanage in Ukraine, there wasn’t much food. I can go days without eating if I don’t think about food. Your mind, to protect itself, learns not to pay attention to that hunger feeling. That’s why for me, eating is one of the hardest things.
