A. Tsapatakis / Strength (2017)
€464,00 – €1.740,00
The project of photoshooting underwater the swimming paralympian champion Antonis Tsapatakis a couple of years ago, was one of the most important projects in my portfolio – in terms of “sending a message through a photograph”.
It was a strong concept with each photo telling a story. I had many shots but I chose two portraits that complete the project as I had it on my mind. The concept was not only the obvious, the freedom someone feels underwater caused by the lack of gravity, not only the fact that water heals the body and the soul, but in a more spiritual level the feeling of equality, the visualization of overcoming all obstacles, of not giving up, even from a man that already had managed to achieve everything in spite his injury, a man that is a symbol of strength and courage.
