Sport

Heidi Harsieber

In my first series entitled Sportfotos (2004–2009) I focused on aesthetic and erotic details that were of interest in terms of atmosphere, rather than outstanding sporting achievements. I once again adopted that particular approach of mine to the world of sport for the FacingAustria project. I was particularly interested in the passion with which sportsmen and women use their bodies and their minds, and also the passion of their fans, who are capable of empathising with them physically.
