In the set of photographs presented in this exhibition, I tried to combine the concept of "movement" and "body" with captures of kickbox fights, where there are often quick and sudden movements. In the images where a confrontation is present I tried to demonstrate that in this type of sports and competitions, the athletes step on the "tatami" and enter a "mental cocoon" mode, that is, they focus on their opponent and on the defense only, abstracting aware of the environment around them. To complement this idea, I used some more detailed photos of the athletes' bodys and their details to provide the idea that the theirs bodys are used as large shields and shields are always found with "marks of war", in this case these marks can be sweat, veins from exertion and even some marks from previous fights.
My name is Diogo Jesus, I'm 21 years old and I'm a photographer directing my passion towards Photojournalism and something more artistic and critical. I took the Photography Technician course at EPI (Professional Image School), which gave me most of the talent I have today. I am very proud of my work and photographic perception.
