In the past few years we have had the chance to photograph a wide range of professional sporters for Helden Magazine. The portraits are part of a collaboration with journalist Rob Willemse, who interviews the sporters. In each issue of the magazine Rob asks a sporter about 'the day it all went wrong'. We in turn photograph them, always in the same style: dressed in black in front of a black back-drop. It is, after all, not the most cheerful interview, as you can imagine.
