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 races do not enjoy the same visibility as the Olympic Games, therefore I believe that Paralympics athletes deserve more view.
“Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.“ — Samuel Johnson
”Δεν είναι από περηφάνεια ούτε από ακροβατική διάθεση που αναζητάμε τα βουνά. Τα άγνωστα βουνά μας μαθαίνουν να βρίσκουμε τον δρόμο μας, να μετράμε τη φύση των εμποδίων και το μέτρο της δικής μας αντίστασης.”
