Plant Powered is a collection of action shots taken around the downtown of Chicago.
Mixed locations and different times of the day provide variety of photographs, including motion heavy images, as well as personal portraits of athletes as individuals.
The underlying purpose of this project indirectly touches upon the subject of diets, which is strongly related to the issues of health and wellness. Both of the athletes are fueled by a plant based diet, which challenges the conventional notion of what masculinity means and what it is made out of.
By showing strong and fit men who follow a vegan diet I began to question the popular dietary mythology that our society is built on, hoping to start the discussion about the nutrition.
I want to motivate more people to do their own food-research and stop relying on an outdated data.
I hope to expand my collaboration with plant-powered athletes and work on variety of sport activities with a more diversified mixture of people.
