Nike by Harry George Hall

Harry was commissioned by Nike to photograph Mo Farah training at altitude in Ethiopia, ahead of the 2019 London Marathon. 

Mo trained in the beautiful backdrop of Ethiopia at 10,000 ft above sea level (which highlighted both how relentless Mo is and how unfit Harry is…)

A genuinely lovely, incredibly hard working guy, Mo has the power, speed and stamina of a machine but managed to remain one of the most down to earth people Harry’s ever had the privilege of photographing.

The resulting shots show a beautiful range of portraits, recording a private glimpse of Mo behind the scenes, capturing the intensity of both his physical and mental preparation.
