Sports photography is all too often only about winners, records, or the decisive moment in a competition. Nothing wrong with that.
In this book the author Thomas Hartmann presents candid portraits of amateur triathletes before and during their competition. It's not about the winner, nor the triathlon sport itself. It's about human emotions. You will find intense expressions of anticipation and determination, as well as quiet joy and relaxation before the event.
Exhaustion, happiness, and pain are written on their faces later in the race. Close up portraits of individual athletes showing a broad range of emotions are presented in this book.
