SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING...

 
SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMINGSynchronized swimming, once known as water ballet, has grown from its humble origins to become a fully organized, internationally competitive sport, reaching the Olympics in 1984. It’s a female dominated discipline, though men compete internationally. Competitions are organized into four categories: solo, duet, team (four to eight swimmers), and combination (ten swimmers). Although synchronized swimming is a graceful and gentle sport, it requires a stage-like charisma, along with motor precision, strength, flexibility, and above all, aerobic endurance. This is why international-class swimmers train up to 5 hours a day. Synchronized swimming has achieved its highest levels in countries like the United States, Russia, Japan, Spain, China, and France. The national team of Ukraine, coached by Svetlana Saidova, is considered to be one of the world’s best teams. Performances of the Ukrainian swimmers are as breathtaking for the public above the water as for an observer below the water. #beyoundthebody #book #tomaszgudzowaty #nangoldin #steidl #photography #swimming #sport #longtermproject

OF...

 
OFTechnically, Polaroid Type 55 film was a B&W peel-apart film which produced a usable 4x5" negative as well as the instant positive print. For users of large format cameras designed around single sheet film it was much more than that, becoming almost a cult object, and its discontinuation due to the company's bankruptcy was much deplored. The negatives were fine grained, of extremely high resolution and a wide tonal range, so they could be used to produce very large prints. What was most characteristic, however, was the unmistakable "Polaroid frame look", the irregular frame surrounding the proper image due to the mechanical constraints of the film cassette. The positive prints were usually thrown out as left-over artifacts or kept as proof sheets in order to aid in the selection of negatives from which to make artwork prints.Artur Coleman Danto, an American art critic and philosopher, says that “the distinction between art and reality, like the distinction between artwork and artifact is absolute”, and “to extract it [an artifact] from the system in which it has its function and display it for itself is to treat a means as though it were and end.” In this age of uncertainty and change, we are less inclined to believe in absolute distinctions, and more open to appreciating the value of art found in artifacts, “the esthetic of chance”. And we don't even need to seek absolution too far, as Danto himself secured it for us: “The prevailing wisdom […] was that there can be no definition of art, since no single property or set of properties was exhibited by the class of artworks, as can be verified when we try to find it. But neither is a definition really needed - for we all are able to pick the artworks out of a set of objects, leaving the non-artworks behind.” This series of proofs attempts to prove the validity of this premise.

CHINESE GYMNASTS...

 
CHINESE GYMNASTSChinese children who dream of a gymnastic career have a long way to go. There are three stages of training. Third-degree schools (the lowest) are responsible for talent selection. After a short trial period, children with potential continue training for two or three years on their own free time. The most talented children go to second-degree schools for intensive training. Here, they participate in nationwide competitions. Winning a medal is usually a passport to a first-degree school, which paves the way to an international career. A day in the Shanghai second-degree school, led by trainer Chen, begins with one hour of gymnastics. After breakfast, the children attend three hours of classes, followed by a lunch break and short recovery period before beginning another four hours of technical training. After a shower and dinner, the children go to more classes. At 9.15 p.m. everyone goes to bed. After such an exhausting day, sleep overcomes them, bringing dreams that are likely as regimented as their daily training routine. #sport #china #photography #portrait #amazing #kids #beyoundthebody #tomaszgudzowaty #nangoldin #documentary #photooftheday @melodymir @tomaszgudzowaty

In February, in the Serengeti national park, at the foot of Ngorongoro, an extinct volcano in northern Tanzania, in a period of only three weeks half a million wildebeest calves are born. Four minutes after being born, they are already standing on their own legs, and only two hours later they can run. It matters, because two months later the dry season begins in Tanzania, and the young and their parents set off on a long and dangerous journey. One and a half million wildebeests, together with a large number of zebras and gazelles, head north into Kenya, more than two million animals in all. It is the world’s biggest migration of mammals. They cover a total of more than 3000 kilometres. I called the album this picture is from Following the Rain. This extraordinary migration begins in April. In June wildebeests can be seen on the southern banks of the Grumeti river, in the so-called Western Corridor, where they prepare to cross. While crossing to the northern side of the river many of them fall victim tto crocodiles. But the worst is yet to come.#photobook #closer #tomaszgudzowaty #witoldszabłowski #text #climate #nature #wildlife #africa #amazing #power #instagram #photography #photooftheday #us #travel #travelexhibition @melodymir @tomaszgudzowaty
