The Descent

To launch the new Volvo V60, I was asked to go to Northern Spain, and in particular, the Pyrenees, to photograph three athletes who were to be involved with a mini movie of the car called 'The Descent'. Tom Oehler is regarded as one of the foremost Trial Riders, as is Jean Baptiste-Chandelier in his chosen vocation as a paraglider. Finally, there was Anton Krupicka, an Ultra Runner, whose event involves running 160km per race. All three showed what I guess is paramount when achieving the heights that they have, namely unrelenting passion and enthusiasm for their respective sports.
