Yellow Yam, Kingston, Jamaica

I shot this when I was in Jamaica in 2009. A friend of a friend asked me to shoot some stills of these athletes for a magazine that is published in Jamaica. At first I asked myself why shoot athletes, that's not my interest, people are my interest. But I thought about it and I said to myself they are people too and at the same time I let myself be open the the experience. I opened to the idea of Chance. And thus this is the product of what I captured, portraits of these athletes right after they ran their race.
Thanks for the link Kaysian



















Here is a link to a video that gives you an intimate look at a few of these athletes.
