As part of Pride House 2012 at the London Olympic Games, American artist Jeff Sheng presents Fearless, a photography series about openly gay athletes.

Fearless is a nine-year-long photography project by Sheng, who since 2003 has photographed over 150 LGBT-identified high school and collegiate athletes in the U.S. and Canada.

The debut of this work in London coincides with a fundraising drive that features T-shirts with the slogan “Fearless,” printed and donated by Nike to help raise funds for the artist to complete the project next year as a photography book.

Sheng is also the celebrated photographer of the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ series – an intimate portrait of troops serving in silence before the policy’s 2011 repeal.
