Back Swirl


The strength required for the sport of rowing is evident in the back.

That’s what I was focusing on during this practice session for the Trinity rowing project.

The definition in the back of this rower is extraordinary, but what I like about this image is how the camera captured the movement by recording the hair on his back, freckles and birthmarks in a swirling pattern - with a deep gully down the middle at the apex of the backward stroke. The swirl allows your eye to follow the movement of the muscle.
