Generali - Idole Hautnah

Two gymnasts, Fabian Hambüchen and Gabriel Eichhorn. In the minutes before training, they sit in the locker room on a box, slide their gloves with finger holes on, wrap their wrists, clap their palms together, and let the magnesium dust fly. Then they stride, broad-shouldered, through dark corridors into the hall into the light. Where the apparatuses stand, on which they aim to deliver top performances. Where hard work is done: giving everything and achieving the big goal. Winning gold, standing at the top, being the best in the world.
I had the privilege of accompanying these exceptional athletes as a DP for the Generali Online Journal. Together with the Monacoframe Collective, we created a portrait that spans over four minutes.
