World wrestling championships 2017

I attended day 5 of the UWW world championships 2017 that took place in Paris. The freestyle wrestling was great fun and quite impressive to watch. As for photography, I was in the public (i.e. not in the press & photographers box) and material that could be taken in the arena was quite limited. Thus, no portrait or real highlights of wrestling moves, I stuck to atmospheric, ambient shots.

It’s amazing how much talent you can discover simply by looking around you, in the streets, particularly in cities like Paris. It is a commonplace to say so, but photography increases your level of awareness… It pushes you to be more outgoing, and with a bit of luck, you’ll find someone willing to play your game.

It’s what happened to me last Thursday. I was definitely privileged to stumble on this capoeira dancer in a park. I could gush with superlatives, but just look at the picture, you should get my point. I still have difficulties doing exactly what I want when trying to capture movement, but this experience was definitely enriching.

Special thanks to Christophe.
