I am an Ironman ‘Ironman’ triathlon is an endurance sport, which involves swimming, cycling and running. For the last 8 years I have competed in ‘Ironman’ races all over the world. I am an Ironman is a series of 30 self-portraits, which aim to convey what it feels like to train for an ‘Ironman’ race. Each portrait was made immediately after a training workout with me still dressed in my training kit. The idea was to capture myself when too tired and distracted to pose. The work as a response to the typical ‘heroic’ imagery of ironman athletes. I am an Ironman is part of my wider investigation into strategies for ‘disarming the pose’ of portrait subjects. Keith Greenough, September 2012 I am an Ironman was exhibited at the Photofusion Salon 2013 and the [(6)] Exhibition at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield in 2014.
