Essay: A powelifting event

A while ago I had the chance to shoot at a local powerlifting event organized by the Greek Power Triathlon Association. The competition included the squat movement as well as bench pressing (multiple reps, where number of successful tries as well as time was considered).  

Here is a small gallery of photos, which I opted to develop in B&W, in order to present the rawness and athletic simplicity of the situation. I hope I managed to capture the intensity, passion and commitment of these athletes, some of them with international experience and distinctions.

(All photos shot with the Fuji X-E2 and 35mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2 and Samyang 8mm fisheye)


Photography is alive and kicking (you -probably- just don't get it)
