Athletes from all over the world were preparing for the Tokyo Olympics but the COVID-19 outbreak changed the plans of the entire humankind. Instead of training sessions and qualifying events, athletes found themselves stuck at home. I managed to arrange remote photo shoots via video calls and photographed athletes in their homes where they were still hoping to go to Tokyo and making sure to stay in shape. I took all the photos via FaceTime. The athletes’ friends and family members helped by holding up their phones while I positioned the frame remotely. This series is about the Olympic champions and Russia’s first-time representatives in Tokyo who had to hide from the pandemic at home.
