In her portrait of Olga Korbut, McKenzie captures not the gymnast’s moment of crowning glory (winning three gold medals at the ’72 Olympics) – but rather her crushing parallel bars defeat which won her the hearts of millions. Fragmenting the image to a ’photo-finish’, McKenzie conveys a split second of historical immortalization in a freeze frame as imprecise and intangible as the real memory.
