"You could call me the perpetual Olympian -- always trying to beat my previous performance," writes François Xavier Marit, technicl chief at AFP photo. "Except for me it’s not chasing other athletes, it’s capturing them all. On film."
"My job is to find innovative ways for AFP to produce spectacular images at major events like the Olympics. Over the roughly 15 years that I’ve been at it, this has gone from putting a camera behind a football goalpost for the first time ever, to planning a network of robotic cameras to capture action from places that no photographer has gone before."
