Hang in There
This project explores athletes trying to get through lockdown, using a play on words to link to the sport of climbing where you’re literally hanging on to the wall. However it is relevant to everyone who is hanging in there, in their own way, to get through lockdown. The project documents a climber called Martin at his private bouldering gym in the West Midlands, showing his journey of rebuilding the strength, muscular endurance and climbing ability that he lost during the original lockdown when he wasn’t able to train. With close up images highlighting all of the musculature needed to hang on to these tiny hand-holds, emphasising the repercussions that lack of training has on athletes.
