Ellen Graham's Eye on the World: Dara Torres

Dara Torres, Palm Beach 2001. From The Bad and The Beautiful.
Ellen Graham met Darra Torres, the tri-silver medalist of this year’s Olympics, several years ago when they were seated next to each other at a CityMeals On Wheels luncheon at the Rainbow Room here in New York.

She was amazed to learn that this beautiful woman – whom she thought was a model – was a champion Olympic swimmer. She made arrangements to photograph her. Ms. Torres came for her session with her mother whom Ellen said was also very beautiful and as a matter of fact had been a model.

This particular image is from Ellen’s book of photo portraits, The Bad and The Beautiful.
