London’s National Portrait Gallery has teamed up with BT, a premier partner of London 2012, to present a major summer exhibition of London Olympic photographs: BT Road to 2012: Aiming High.

This unique exhibition, which opens on 19 July and continues until 23 September, is a final culmination of a three-year exhibition project, National Portrait Gallery/BT Road to 2012.

The photographers include internationally acclaimed names Nadav Kander, Anderson & Low and Jillian Edelstein, who have taken a number of stunning images of athletes, as well as key people behind London 2012, including Boris Johnson to Danny Boyle.

Among those featured is paralympic equestrian Anne Dunham, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 27, and has been a wheelchair user since she was 30. Although she rode and worked in stables as a teenager, Anne did not start competing until the age of 40.

She has since won team gold in four consecutive Paralympic Games, and her first individual gold in Beijing 2008, at the age of 60. Her medals include team gold and individual silver and bronze at the 2010 World Equestrian Games.
At the London 2012 Paralympic Games she will be aiming for a fifth gold medal in the team dressage event.
Anne Dunham’s portrait was taken by Anderson & Low in Wiltshire in November 2011.
