|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.
