“To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal.”
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to Orlando and photograph Bahamian Olympian, 400m runner, Steven Gardiner who has been breaking records this year leading up to London. Although the Florida heat was no joke, watching him run was such a calming experience because his form is so graceful and fluid. It almost looks effortless for him, when in reality it is really hard work. I can’t wait to see the records he will break in London.
“In the Quiet Moments” is my latest photography series featuring professional track athletes. After having the opportunity to document 3x Olympian, Gold & Bronze Medalist, DeeDee Trotter during her retirement year, I began to notice the quiet moments that these olympians face every day that many don’t get to see. We watch them compete in the largest stadiums, positioned on the blocks in complete silence before they take off, but rarely see the “behind the scenes” that has gotten them to that point. This series is a closer look at these moments.
