 I had set up the concept and aesthetics of this series of images and offered INSEP to team up on the making of this new set of images. The response from the French National Sports Federations was unanimous, and we carried out this project. So was the response of the creative community with two prizes subsequently awarded to me by a Jury composed of photo magazines editors in 18 (yes, eighteen!) European Countries

 Based on a concept © Max Riché.

The series won the EISA Maestro Silver Award Europe, 2012-2013.
