Echos Takay

Takay’s first book tells a story through images, but this one allows the viewer  to choose his own story, his own “plot”. Starting from very abstract “macro” shots, focusing on breath, tension, sweat, the lens open to some body parts, showing muscles and the power of the man’s body. At this point, the wiewer asks himself: “is it a Fight? some Sex Scene? a Dance? or…” And everybody can choose his own interpretation. The final frames, opened to the full bodies, show the real action: two wrestlers fighting on a black backdrop. About the project, the author said: “ I always wanted to shoot an actual physical moment of athletes, to show the tenseness, the temperature of the bodies. When i started to take pictures, i found very interesting the breathing in the grappling between the wrestlers. It was like a dance between the two."
