AT THE BEACH
In 2015, I was still working as a Sports Photographer and had been engaged by several wrestling clubs to follow and photograph championship matches as their members hoped to compete in the Olympics. One such championship took place in North Carolina. The match was at night, but I noticed there was going to be an amateur wrestling match on the beach during the day. Having never seen one, I was intrigued and it was indeed a lot of fun to photograph. When I was looking at my images later at home, however, I became even more intrigued by some of the observers at the beach matches. They seemed to be telling a more interesting story than the wrestling match. For the final image, no. 4, I was the only observer.
