Documentary pictures from my archive that are somehow connected to community events.
In this case it is the city marathon in Chicago and Detroit in October 2014.
I am photographer from Ostrava, Czech Republic. Creative process is relaxing for me and allows me to distantiate from the day-to-day work and get in "the zone". I am always taking my camera for business trips and then I shoot street photography.
Statement about the work:
Pictures were taken during consecutive weekends while I was on a business trip to USA. It is a quite a contrast to compare Chicago and Detroit events. The first obvious difference was the size of the event. It was much bigger in Chicago. Also the cityscape is quite different for both cities.
The first picture is from Chicago. Here I liked the contrast of the cityscape with the reflections above and the crowd below.
The second picture is from Chicago, taken at the finish line.
The last picture features Detroit. I liked the bystanders effort to support the runners:)
