Inspired by the story of Notis who lost his leg after a car accident, I created a series of photos by following him for a day in the swimming pool during his fitness program. Notis is a member of the Greek national wheelchair basketball team.
This series of photos was created as a trigger for a greater visibility for the Paralympic athletes as they give number of other “fights” with much greater authenticity in a more challenging and greater substance in the world of sports. Under difficult circumstances, athletes often make more effort than some Olympics practitioners, although Paralympic games do not enjoy the same visibility as the Olympic Games, therefore I believe that Paralympics athletes deserve more view.
I am more than happy to announce that part of my photos have chosen by the PH21 Gallery in Budapest to be exhibited in the group exhibition “Stories” which is going to be held from 11th April to 4th May. Furthermore one of my photos have been awarded with Honourable mention among 35 photographers.
