Surgical Start

"Arsenio Bustos looks on in his protective face covering worn due to the Covid-19 pandemic before he competes in the Men's 200 Meter IM during Day Four of the TYR Pro Swim Series at SwimRVA at the Collegiate School Aquatics Center on January 17, 2021 in Richmond, Virginia"

A clean background is most often your ticket to a compelling image.

During the TYR Pro Swim Series at SwimRVA, action is obviously the image we are seeking. But living in a pandemic, I have this deep interest in capturing how we are competing during this health crisis.

Masks are a clear historical visual reference. And like so many other sports, athletes wore them until it was time to dive off of the blocks.

Having a clean background with a color palate matched surgical masks was a perfect way to document this event. 

One day we'll look back at these images knowing how we all adapted to keep athletes in action.
