Two artists were commissioned to produce work for the show:
- Brian Griffin is famous for his depiction of people at work. He photographed builders on the Broadgate site in the 1980s, and workers on the High Speed 1 railway in 2007.
- Bettina von Zwehl graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1999 and has since exhibited around the world.
The exhibition is part of an ongoing project to document London 2012 through 100 commissioned portraits and interviews. More work will be revealed next summer, and there will be a big exhibition to coincide with the opening ceremony for the Games in 2012.
