Earlier this year Stern magazine commissioned photographers BraschlerFischer to travel around Europe photographing the female gold medal favorites attending the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. The story, titled “Startklar!” (Get ready!), marks a year in which more women are competing than ever before; all the participating nations are sending at least one female representative. Braschler/Fischer traveled to each of the athletes (in Berlin, Frankfurt, London, Monaco, Rome and Leysin) and shot them in a portable, pop-up studio constructed at each site.
