Athletic (Photographic) Excellence: Katja Stuke – Super Natural

Presenting the Excellent publication Katja Stuke – Super Natural, available for purchase via LN-CC, London’s best boutique, as mentioned previously, Product description via LN-CC: “Softcover, 28 pages, 28 x 35 cm, 13 colour plates, offset print, edition of 150 copies. Katja Stuke’s series SUPERNATURAL shows male and female athletes, who mentally somehow seem to be somewhere else – absent in their concentration, shortly before their athletic peak performance. A skill to ignore the whole environment, thousands of people in the audience, the noise level, everything that surrounds them. Because all eyes are set on them, the main characters, and exactly this concentration is crucial for their success.The images of gymnasts and high-divers have been taken during the Olympic Games in Sydney (2000), Athens (2004) and Peking (2008). All portraits have been photographed from the television screen. One can still see the grids, the rest of the television features, like stations or the fade-ins have been removed.” To add to your library, please click here.
