The modern day mass-media constantly sends us impulses that attempt to create a need for perfection within us. How deeply do they influence your life? Where do your mental and physical boundaries lie? Within the deep world of bodybuilding I find an aesthetic that emulates this. An unknown and unseen world opens. What appears to be extreme to the outsider, is something to strive towards and a test of character to the insider. Discobolus is named after a Greek statue of an athlete, a discus pitcher, known for his inner focus and balance. The past years I’ve been spending time getting to know the bodybuilding scene and infiltrating this deep dark, unknown world. My photographic work shows clear links to art history, is critical yet not judgemental – in the end, we all experience or very own discobolus.
