Ironman Family Ironman’ triathlon is an endurance sport, which involves swimming, cycling and running over a course of some 140 miles. For the last 8 years I have actively competed in ‘Ironman’ races all over the world. I have made many new friends in the sport. What has always struck me about these people is just how diverse they are. I wanted to capture this through a series of portraits of my extended ‘Ironman Family’. Beforehand, I had asked each of them to wear something that signifies ‘Ironman’ for them - anything from race kit to a simple finisher’s bracelet. Ironman Family is part of my broader inquiry into strategies portrait photographers use for ‘disarming the pose’ of their subjects.
